Natural Sciences Summer Undergraduate Research Program
The Natural Sciences Summer Undergraduate Research Program engages students in active exploration involving both imagination and the thorough testing of ideas. Under a mentor’s one-on-one guidance during ten weeks of focused investigation, the student-researcher experiences a wider dimension of learning rarely accessible from the academic-year textbook and laboratory assignments. Through both the failures and the triumphs of research, students can gain confidence in their ability to face unknowns and to solve problems, can develop ways of thinking that typify researchers, and can appreciate the exhilaration of discovery. Student-researchers can then bring a richer understanding of the natural sciences to their future roles as professionals and as world citizens.
