Research Immersion in Science and Engineering introduces students in the iterative cycle of innovations in science and engineering. From basic science research to the development of new applications, therapies, and technologies, students learn how research scientists and engineers contribute new knowledge and innovative approaches to tackle societal issues. Students visit active research laboratories and facilities, attend discussions highlighting current research at UF, and participate in hands-on activities and experiments with leading UF research faculty and graduate students. A culminating group project encourages collaborative learning, synthesis of ideas and technologies learned at UF, and the development of new project ideas.
