Hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Creative Activities and Research Symposium (CPP CARS) is a celebration of student investigationexploration, and inquiry completed by Cal Poly Pomona (CPP) and community college students participating in summer research programs. Students can present the work they completed during the academic year and summer while they were a student at CPP. There are two presentation formats students can chose from: 1) An Oral Presentation session with a 10-minute Oral Presentation followed by a 4-minute Q&A. 2) A Poster and Creative Works Panel where each student gives a 4-minute presentation followed by a 2-minute Q&A for each presentation in the session.

This year, we are partnering with the NSF REU Big Data Security and Privacy Program and Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) to bring this celebration of our Research Community to life.
