2006 REU Program


Thirteen students from around the country arrive this week to participate in the 2006 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program.

The ten-week outreach program at the University of Minnesota is to begin on June 5, 2006 and finish on August 11, 2006. Over the summer, participants will be actively engaged in research under the supervision of faculty and staff of the School of Physics and Astronomy. As usual, the REU base of operations is Physics 140. In addition to research students participate in weekly seminars delivered by faculty members, a GRE prep course and a poster session in which they present their results. They also take field trips to the O'Brien Observatory and the Soudan Mine.
