A Distributed REU Site Focused on Serving Physics and Astronomy Students from Comprehensive and Community Colleges
Department or Administrative Unit
This project sought to provide students with their first faculty-mentored research experience. The principal difference between this National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) initiative and the more traditional, single-campus physics and astronomy REU is that our program used a distributed model with students conducting their research at different institutions across the nation. Seven universities participated in hosting REU students during the program, including Central Washington University (CWU), College of Charleston, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, SUNY-Geneseo, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Weber State University, and Wright State University.
