This course offers undergraduate students the opportunity to deeply engage in the scientific process while gaining essential skills, including observation, written and oral communication, critical thinking, and problem-solving, in a collaborative environment. Students will develop these skills through cohort-based research experiences (Research Streams) as part of the Science Research Initiative. Each research Stream will be supervised by a faculty mentor from the College of Science. Students will be working on an independent project- the degree to which the student conceptualizes and designs that project is largely up to the mentor. The specific laboratory skills and disciplinary knowledge learned while carrying out research will vary depending on the focus of the research project. In addition to acquiring research Stream specific disciplinary expertise, participation will generally develop skills for reviewing scientific literature, data collection and data analyses, and scientific communication.
