CIERA’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program provides students with the chance to pursue an astrophysics-based interdisciplinary research project in collaboration with Northwestern faculty. This year, 13 exceptional students were selected and funded by NSF to spend their summer researching at the University, and learning technical skills that will serve them in their future academic and professional lives.
On August 17th, 2017, these summer researchers presented their investigations at the REU’s program’s final poster session.
The session served as an opportunity for the students to share their hard work with peers and faculty from many different departments, as well as the chance to practice public speaking before presentations to the public at the Adler Planetarium, and a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
Congratulations to these talented students on all they have accomplished!
