Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) -- A group of students from UW–Superior is heading to Madison this week...and if you're wondering...it's not to protest.

The eight students were chosen to showcase their research in the capitol as part of "Posters in the Rotunda: A Celebration of Undergraduate Research."

They've spent the last several weeks researching various topics in computer science, biology, and transportation and logistics management.

During the event legislators and visitors to the capitol will be able to view the posters and ask questions.

"They talk to a certain extent about the project but they also talk about the students and the student's learning experience, what they got out of the research project, how they've grown with it," said Dr. Richard Stewart, Professor of Transportation and Logistics.

"We're going to learn how to interact with the state legislature, we're going to interact with other students, the networking is going to be fantastic," said Ashley Puhek, student.

The students are now in the midst of making last minute changes to their posters.

The Wisconsin University System selected students from each of their campuses to participate in this statewide event.

The posters will be up and ready for viewing this Wednesday, April 6th in the capital rotunda.
