As part of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program through The Ohio State University, Stone Lab’s Research Experience for Undergraduates Scholarship Program brings together students from across the country to learn how to conduct real, in-the-field research alongside top scientists. Over five weeks, participants use scientific equipment, explore the Lake Erie islands, and collect important data to help solve the most pressing issues for the Great Lakes region.
While taking a five-week course at Stone Lab, REU students spend their “non-class” days focused on research. Working closely with their research supervisor, they collect data, learn how to write up their discoveries, and give a final presentation to their peers—learning the research process from start to finish and gaining valuable, professional experience.
During the summer of 2010, Biology major, Katie Huff (AU'11) participated in this program. Visit the Ashland Science News blog to read about her experience.
