FYRES Research Projects in 2013-2014
FYRES students and Research Mentors worked on 4 research projects in the September 2013-May 2014 academic year. The projects included topics of scientific interest as well as applied research questions.
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) are working on this project. Some of their early results are included under Conference Presentations.
