Grad students to showcase Canada Games research Thursday

When the Canada Games took place in Niagara this past summer, Brock University graduate students took the opportunity to dive into a variety of related research.

Six of those projects — covering topics such as mother coaches of high-performing athletes, leveraging biomechanics and machine learning, and the economic burden of injuries — will be presented to the Brock community Thursday, Oct. 6 during the Brock-Canada Games Academic Showcase in Pond Inlet.

The Faculty of Graduate Studies will host its Research Café as part of the showcase from 3 to 5 p.m. The in-person event is free to attend.

Check-in begins at 2:30 p.m., with opening remarks beginning at 3. The six chosen graduate student presenters will start shortly after speaking on their unique research related to the sport industry.

Graduate Studies Research Cafés provide a casual and supportive environment for Brock’s grad students to practise delivering their research, in comparison to a traditional conference.

For a full list of the graduate student presenters and their projects, visit the Faculty of Graduate Studies website. Registration for the event closes Wednesday, Oct. 5.
