Celebrating Undergraduate Research

Activity by Christine Gottardo   |   added on Aug 08, 2011   |   Canada Official_iyc_logo

Sponsor(s): Department of Chemistry

A video has been produced highlighting undergraduate research students as they describe the importance of research experience to their undergraduate learning. web-site: http://chemistry.lakeheadu.ca/?display=page&pageid=14

All professional chemists began their careers as students.  The best way to foster ethusiasm is to involve the undergraduate students in research.  We have produced a video which is available on the departmental website of the Department of Chemistry, Lakehead University in which we interview senior undergraduate students and they describe their research experiences.  Their enthusiasm serves as a reminder of the vital importance of undergraduate research to the future of chemistry, universities and the funding agencies which support research.
