Participants work on projects at the forefront of nanomaterials and nanotechnology research. Professors work closely with the undergraduate students to help them accomplish their research goals, to learn how to communicate their results orally and in writing, and to help them develop as responsible scholars. Weekly group discussion sessions and field trips to laboratories, where students view materials research in the "real world," are all a part of the summer experience.
