Summer Research

June 19th, 2012 in Students

Time for a little word association.  Summer = ?.  Beach, rest, vacation, research. Research? For some BUMP students summer is another opportunity to continue their research, either through the BU University Research Opportunity Program (UROP) or NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). Take a look at some of their research projects here and here.
