Undergraduate research bootcamp
     Our research bootcamp (virtual, May 22-26) aims to promote a working understanding of the basics of research and data science. In the course of one week, students will learn to read scientific papers, formulate scientific hypotheses, and learn the basics of secondary data analysis (looking at data that is already collected). We will investigate an exciting, longitudinal research project. Students will start a research project in small groups over the course of the week and present their findings to their peers and instructors.
     Day-to-day, the bootcamp is composed of interactive lectures and application of lessons in a group setting. Students should expect to spend roughly half of their time in lecture and half engaged in applying the content they have learned over the week.  After completion of the program, instructors will be available to help students brainstorm how to obtain additional research experiences.
    No prior research experience is needed and participation is free. All you need is a laptop and full-time availability May 22-26. Once your application is received, you will be notified as to your status within 1-2 weeks. If accepted, a more specific schedule will be provided. If you need assistance completing this application, please email adkinsae@vcu.edu.
     Priority deadline is May 1, 2023 by 5pm.
