The NSF funded Research Experience for Undergraduates: Food, Energy, Water Security (NSF: REU-INFEWS) is in full swing! Nine students were selected for the REU-INFEWS program, with an additional 21 students participating in activities through external funding support.  We are hosting students from 17 different colleges and universities. Our cohort of 30 students are all engaged in research activities for the summer along with social and career-building experiences to guide them toward future careers as scientists.  MSU is proud to host such a large and talented group of students for our summer program.

Our REU and Summer Research Students participated in the CSI (Creative Science through Inquiry): Teacher Education Workshop in Tuscaloosa, AL.  All undergraduate students got to present their summer research overview and then work with the middle- and high-school science teachers to do an experiment.  This event is a highlight of our summer as the teachers so much enjoy seeing what students are doing in college and recognizing how far these students have come since their K-12 days.
