Description: 

This research experience program will provide undergraduate students with laboratory and field training in aquatic science (including lake and ocean systems) with extensive shipboard field research opportunities. The goal of this activity is to develop, through hands-on experience, future scholars to pursue Interdisciplinary research toward an understanding of the aquatic environment. The program will consist of a work-experience program in the laboratory and in the field, under the supervision of a research director. In consultation with the research director, students will prepare a written research plan, conduct the proposed work, prepare a project summary and give an oral presentation of the results at the close of the session. Team investigations will join students and faculty from several disciplines working on a major research project. Research directors include scientists at the Center for Great Lakes Studies and faculty from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Geosciences, and others.
