A lot of learning occurs when undergraduate students do research – learning that does not happen during traditional coursework. Classroom knowledge is reinforced and more completely assimilated when students are given the opportunity to apply that knowledge.

Research leads to a better understanding of and appreciation for the discipline under investigation.

Engaging in research in the sciences is also wonderful way to enhance your education and to build connections with faculty mentors.
