CLEMSON, South Carolina – The 2017 “Focus on Creative Inquiry Poster Forum” was held from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. April 6 at the Watt Family Innovation Center on the main campus of Clemson University. Teams representing more than 1,000 undergraduate students were on hand to talk about their research projects.

Creative Inquiry is Clemson’s unique brand of undergraduate research in which teams of students led by faculty, staff and graduate students work to solve real-word problems that may be part of the mentor’s research, a question from a student or needs of the world around. Since it began in 2005, there have been more than 39,000 Creative Inquiry student research experiences. Creative Inquiry projects often result in presentations at national conferences, publication in journals, grant submissions and patent disclosures.
