After two years of having to put one of the most anticipated undergraduate summer programs on pause due to COVID-related restrictions, in June of 2022, PCCM opened its doors again and hosted 9 REU students from 7 different states/territories (ranging from Puerto Rico to California to Idaho and more)!
The students are currently conducting research with their assigned professors, and graduate/post-doctorate mentors, selected based off of their scientific interests. The 9-week REU program focuses on a wide range of materials science topics with the students gaining guidance through the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Civil and Environmental Engineering.
The 9 REU students attend weekly seminars and are consistently conducting research in the labs alongside the guidance of their mentors. At the end of the REU program on August 4th, the 9 REU students will be given the chance to present their research on a 30”X40” inch poster board during the programs final evening, “Poster Night Session” in front of PCCM Staff, professors and their graduate/post-doc. mentors with the possibility of a student or two getting their research professionally published!
