Mentors for CU Research Experience Summer 2016
This program runs from June 27th to July 21st. Please do not fill this out if you are going to be gone for a significant portion of that time and you would not have anyone else to mentor your students while you are gone. You will be assigned 2 High School students to shadow you in the lab and be of use wherever you see fit. It is my hope that these students will be involved in projects that help the lab move forward. The students are expecting to work 30-35 hrs per week and this could be anything (taking data, analyzing data, taking pictures, doing background research on an area you'd like to get into, setting up a new piece of equipment...). It's meant to be a 'research experience' and give them a taste for real research. Your students will also be taking a Research Methods class (taught by Kat Penzkover) where they will learn good writing techniques, how to make a scientific poster, how to do a literature search, what the process is to get your work published... During the course of this class the students will also be developing a poster to show at the Research Expo on July 21st. This class will most likely run from 9-11 two mornings a week (this will be time you will not be expected to be with your student).
