The 2018 PhB Symposium will showcase the latest undergraduate research at the Australian National University (ANU). Students from the prestigious research focused Bachelor of Philosophy (PhB) program will give short presentations on research projects which they have completed across the ANU Colleges of Science, Arts and Social Sciences, and Asia and the Pacific as part of their undergraduate studies.

In this year’s Symposium, PhB students will cover an exciting variety of topics: from the representation of Aboriginal people and convicts in colonial discourse to how to build a quantum computer; from exploring the importance of sport and cricket as a symbol of patriotism to a hypothetical cure for malignant cancer cells; from the social and economic impact of internet adoption in developing countries to the hunt for the mysterious “Planet Nine” in our solar system.

This is a chance for you to find out more about real-world research that our ambitious young undergraduate students are engaging in. The audience will also have the opportunity to participate actively by voting for the best presentations at the end of the Symposium.

Refreshments will be served at the end of the Symposium and you will also have the opportunity to chat with ANU students and staff.
