Proceedings of Student Research and Creative Inquiry Day

This publication promotes student research and creative inquiry by publishing the abstracts, posters, and papers of participants of the annual Research and Creative Inquiry Day held on the campus of Tennessee Technological University. This is published annually in late spring.  Inclusion in the journal is optional, and some work is not included due to intellectual property protection and due to publication in other journals.  The authors retain all copyright and ownership of the material, and they are free to publish the materials elsewhere as desired.
