Invitation to Special Session at 2002 ACC for Research Experiences for Undergraduates


The goal of this session is to present diverse ways in which undergraduate students can participate in research experiences. The various presentations focus on successful programs that feature undergraduate students working on research projects with faculty members. Traditionally, we normally think of individual projects being worked on by a single or a small group of students. This traditional approach is just one of many ways that this can be done. Innovative ways, such as research courses and summer programs, can be incorporated into the curriculum to ensure that students receive a research experience. Additionally, these programs can be changed to accommodate the desired goal of any program. Also presented in this session is an outreach program to high schools and information on NSF support for these education programs. Please join us at this session.
