Go behind the scenes of the Student Research and Creative Activity Expo

It's not every day that you can see demonstrations of an 8-foot-high elephant puppet and a self-propelled snow plow in the same place. 

But that's what you'll find at the Ohio University Student Research and Creative Activity Expo, and this year promises to be just as informative and fun. The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 11 at the Convocation Center.

More than a decade ago, the Expo began as a way for students with university funding for their research and creative work to demonstrate the results of their efforts.

Around 2,000 visitors are expected over the course of the day. The Expo also will host multiple contests for high school, middle school and Ohio University students, who can use Facebook and Twitter to post pictures of the event to win prizes.
