NEW! The Buck Tank is a event sponsored by The Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry designed to encourage students who are new to research to develop an idea for a research project that relates to the Columbus community. The students will have an opportunity to present their idea to a panel of judges.

Those deemed as the best will receive an alloted amount of funding to initiate their project.
