Friday, November 20, 2015 - 11:15am

Texas ECE junior Sanjai Bashyam took first place in the Texas Student Research Showdown organized by the Texas Office of Undergraduate Studies. Sanjai’s project is centered on the Innovation Station, a 3D printing vending machine that provides free access to 3D printing to all students and faculty at UT Austin.

Six undergraduate researchers were recognized for their research communication skills in the final round of the first Texas Student Research Showdown on Nov. 12. A live audience, including a panel of faculty and student judges, heard six-minute presentations on topics ranging from 3D printing to the use of animation to teach patients about medical imaging techniques.

The six finalists qualified for the event with creative, attention-grabbing videos. UT students voted online to determine the finalists from an initial pool of 15.
