All programs, unless otherwise noted, will conclude by 10:20am.  All Research participants are required to attend and participate in these presentations and workshops.

NEWS

  • Orientation will be on Tuesday, June 21, 9:00 - 10:20am in Physics and Astrophysics  Building, room 102/103.
  • We will hold mid-summer check-in meetings during week 5. Sign up and Mid Quarter Reflections survey links to be added later in the summer. 
  • Students will give a brief (~10 minute) presentation about their research at the end of the program (rather than presenting a poster at an in-person event). Presentations will be held on Thursday or Friday of week 10 of the program.
