Cognitive Science Undergraduate Research Day 2024

The 2024 Cognitive Science Undergraduate Research Day will take place Thursday April 11, 2024 

Students recently enrolled in a COGS research course will be giving poster presentations of their work. This is a great opportunity for Cognitive Science undergraduates to share their research, and also for lower year students to see the types of research they might wish to complete themselves.

Come join us for a slice of pizza and the chance for everyone to connect and exchange in person!

Date: Thursday April 11, 2024

Time: 5:00pm - 8:00pm** 

Location: 4th floor of the 2001 McGill College building

**All visitors must arrive before 7:00 p.m. Starting at 7:00 p.m. the elevators will no longer be accessible to anyone who does not have a fob.


Are you a current student enrolled in a COGS research course this year? Or have you completed CogSci research in another term?  Would you like to be one of the student presenters at this event?
