Visible Thinking


COVID-19 Update

Visible Thinking will not be taking place this year in the traditional format this year due to health and safety concerns from COVID-19. In lieu of the poster symposium this year (virtual or otherwise), we will only be organizing and publishing the abstract book. We will print, and mail two copies to participants, and post the PDF version on this page. Our hope is that the abstract book can serve as a physical representation of student's work—which we want recognized and recorded. 

Duke's Visible Thinking is an annual event that celebrates the achievements of undergraduate researchers and explores their original scholarship in the humanities, the natural sciences and engineering, and the social sciences. Visible Thinking is open to Duke undergraduates. All students who receive support from the URS office are expected to present at Visible Thinking.
