Workshop for EXCEL students who are YES scholars scheduled for 3 PM, Friday Feb 5

In preparation for the YES Annual Symposium (scheduled for April 1st, 2010) which we will combine with UCFs SURE (Showcase for Undergraduate Research), we will be holding 2 workshops that you are expected to attend.  Your mentors do not have to attend the workshops, but they should attend the YES Annual Symposium/SURE on April 1st (or send a representative if they are not able to attend).

The 1st YES workshop is scheduled for Friday, Feb 5th, 3:30pm-5:00pm, at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, BA-I 135.

This workshop is a YES Abstract for SURE Workshop. The purpose of this workshop is to prepare you to submit an abstract for the SURE (due February 18, 2010). During this workshop, you will present the abstract of your research or entrepreneurship project. The YES Directors will review your abstracts and go over the SURE application process and what is expected for the SURE/YES Annual Symposium.  Email your abstracts To Lisa Massi (lmassi@mail.ucf.edu) on or prior to Wed. Feb 3.  If we do not receive your abstract by that date, you will be responsible for bringing an electronic and hard copy of your abstract at the time of the workshop.  Your abstract should have: (a) the title of your project, (b) your name, (c), your mentors name, (d) the abstract. Dress is casual, e.g., you can wear your YES t-shirt and jeans.
