UW–Madison students presented their projects at the 2019 Undergraduate Symposium at Union South on April 12, on topics ranging from grape juice to DNA.  The annual event showcases undergraduate creativity, achievement, research, service-learning and community-based research from all areas of study at UW–Madison, including the humanities, fine arts, biological sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences. Open to all undergraduates, the Symposium provides the opportunity for students to present their work in a professional setting. It also provides students with practical experience in public speaking and presentation skills.
