What are YOU doing this summer?

Posted by The College of Science at OSU on January 21, 2009

“Undergraduate research experience”

Three words we hear a lot of these days, and with good reason.

• We need to build a pipeline of future scientists.

• We know lectures don’t inspire students.

• Mentoring is essential for a young investigator.

• Work readiness is an expectation of potential employers.

• College of Science undergraduate students are really really smart and help advance their faculty mentors’ science.

And thus, we have the OSU Summer Undergraduate Research Program, which is funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Here you can find streaming videos of student presentations about their work, downloadable journal articles on their research, and — coming in late January — an application for the 2009 program.
