University of Illinois students were at the capitol Thursday, showcasing their work to state leaders. It was U of I Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol.

The three U of I campuses, Springfield, Chicago and Champaign were all represented. There were about 10 students from each school there explaining the research project they've been working on.

A representative from UIS says the exhibit is also a way to show lawmakers why funding is important.
