Guidelines for Students

Students will be asked to conduct research, which may involve making new compounds, collecting data or working with instruments and computers. The program requires students to submit a report based on their experiences and complete a follow-up survey. Students may also be required to give an oral presentation describing the project and what they have learned.

Just as in any workplace setting, students are expected to be good employees, work every day, show up on time, and dress appropriately for the laboratory environment. They also are expected to maintain a good attitude toward work, use the safety training provided and share any concerns about work with mentors or program coordinators.
