FYRES Research Projects in 2012-2013
FYRES students and Research Mentors worked on 6 research projects in the September 2012-May 2013 academic year. The projects included topics of scientific interest as well as applied research questions.
- Management Techniques study
- Kitchel-Lindquist study
- Mt. Pisgah study

FYRES itself is a research project to investigate whether/how participation in research helps students learn about science. A research team of two faculty (Deanna van Dijk, Crystal Bruxvoort) and a science-education student (Merideth Beukelman) are working on this project. Some of their early results are included under Conference Presentations.
