The Undergraduate Science Case Competition (USCC)

Looking for a way to explore the world of scientific research? Do you wish to develop practical skills essential in research such as critical thinking and teamwork? The Undergraduate Science Case Competition (USCC) is the perfect opportunity for you to explore your creativity and come up with a solution to a real-world scientific challenge.

 

This provincial competition is open to all undergraduate students, however first and second years will be judged in a separate division from upper year students. For the first round of the competition, starting November 1st, your team of 2-4 will have three weeks to write a brief research proposal tackling a real-world problem. The written proposal is limited to two pages; it’s the originality of the idea that really counts! The top 10% scoring teams of each division from uOttawa will be selected for round two in March to compete against other finalists from universities from around Ontario. Students present their research idea as an oral poster presentation, as well as attend a social, a conference, and an awards ceremony. Last year, uOttawa dominated the competition, having the most participants than any other campus in the first round, winning 1st place in the lower division, as well as 2nd place in the upper division. Let’s help uOttawa dominate a second time this year!

 

Learn more and register by October 31th at http://scinapsescience.com/uscc/. Join the USCC, a unique opportunity that will enhance your portfolio and allow you to discover a whole new dimension of scientific innovation!

 

Sincerely,

University of Ottawa SciNapse Representatives

The 8th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD): Review, Respond and Relate – Integrating Research, Policy and Practice Around the World

Although there have been thousands of published articles in FASD in general, there has been limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD or on individuals across the lifespan. As those individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas is becoming critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions.

This interactive 2018 conference will provide an opportunity to be at the forefront of addressing these issues. We will welcome a diverse group of professionals, researchers, students, families and individuals with FASD.

​Date: April 18-21, 2018

Location: The Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, BC, Canada

We have a Call for Abstracts available: http://interprofessional.ubc.ca/initi…/adults2018/abstracts/

SEEKING PARTICIPANTS!

The EntourAGE Lab is pleased to announce that we have a new pilot study underway!

“We are looking for 20 students from the University of Ottawa enrolled in the health sciences (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing, nutrition, speech-language pathology and audiology), social sciences (clinical psychology and social work) or in medicine. We are looking for students who have had some theoretical or practical experience or training on dementia and behaviours.

This project aims to test the usefulness and usability of virtual reality in training on responding to difficult behaviours by people with dementia.

Your participation would involve the completion of two brief surveys, questionnaires, and the virtual reality training module, and would take a maximum of three hours.”

 

If you are interested and would like more information, please contact Dr. Oliver Baus at (613) 562-5800 ext. 1096 or obaus@uottawa.ca
