The National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Site: Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Research for Social Change is engaging 10 undergraduate students each summer for nine weeks in solving real-world problems of national relevance, teaching them to not only be critical thinkers, but to be creative and reflective as well.
Students gain skills in advanced programming and problem solving and use the CI to conduct cutting-edge research in engineering, science, and computational medicine. Research projects emphasize advanced computing as a tool to power discoveries that will impact social change for future generations.
