Undergraduate Programs & Activities
Undergraduate Research Programs
Research experiences teach you to consider how the materials in textbooks are discovered. They teach you the value of skepticism and the importance of asking questions. Learning how to analyze situations rigorously is a skill that has helped me tremendously both in and out of the classroom.
Through my experience in STARS and IFLE, I have gained lab skills, presentation skills, and analytical thinking skills. Now that I am finishing the research process with the publication of a paper, I have seen the entire research process and understand the persistence that is required to make a meaningful contribution to a field of science.
