Science Research

“...something that many undergraduates can't say that they have gotten to do”

Research title: “Searching for the Immortal Worm: Longevity Studies on Caenorabditis elegans”

“Research is a fundamental way to reinforce the basic principles of the scientific method and apply what is being taught in the classroom. Research is almost never straightforward and this gives students the opportunity to learn problem-solving skills while under the watchful eye of a faculty mentor. With our research projects we get the opportunity to create, gather, and interpret data using cutting-edge equipment that the college has purchased; something that many undergraduates can’t say that they have gotten to do.”
