Not all of the questions posed in the Leddy Library Research Question Competition are serious, but they all ask people to imagine the world in new ways, says Simon du Toit.
Three UWindsor students received prizes for participating:
- Yasin Avci finished atop the voting for his query “What can be done at the University of Windsor to get this institution into the ranking for the top 10 universities in Canada?”
- Jelena Djukic’s question “Can Antarctica sustain a year-round community with today’s technology?” was drawn at random from among the submissions.
- Shannon Crampsie won a draw for voting.
The Research Question Competition is held each fall as a precursor to the UWill Discover Undergraduate Research Conference. Dr. du Toit is conference chair.
“It’s a fun way for students to connect their curiosity with research opportunities,” he says.
He reminds people to mark the event in their calendars — Friday, March 31, in the CAW Student Centre.
