Engaging Students in Real Science

Undergraduate research enhances the learning experience of
students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Undergraduate Research in the Sciences offers a groundbreaking and
practical research-based book on the topic. This comprehensive
resource addresses how undergraduate research benefits
undergraduate participants, including those populations that are
underrepresented in the sciences; compares its benefits with other
types of educational activities and experiences; and assesses its
long-term value to students and faculty as both a scholarly and
educational endeavor.


In laying out the processes by which these benefits are
achieved, this important book can assist faculty and program
directors with practical guidance for design and evaluation of both
new and existing undergraduate research programs.


Praise for Undergraduate Research in the Sciences


"This meticulous, definitive study of the effects of working
with a faculty member on research as an undergraduate confirms the
overall value of the experience by taking us deep into the minds
and actions of participants—both faculty and students. As a
result we now have many more compelling reasons to get more
students involved with research mentors and ways to optimize the
benefits for all parties."—George D. Kuh, Chancellor's
Professor and director, Indiana University Center for Postsecondary
Research


"This timely book offers a unique, comprehensive analysis of
undergraduate research in the sciences, based on the voices of
college students and faculty mentors who have participated in these
voyages of discovery. As our nation struggles to train more
scientists, this book will be a valuable resource for designing
undergraduate research experiences that can build our country's
capacity for discovery and innovation."—Arthur B. Ellis, Vice
Chancellor for Research, University of California, San Diego


"The text is written in a lucid and engaging style and will be a
valuable guide to policymakers, academic administrators, and
faculty members who want to find ways to engage undergraduates in
the 'real work' of investigation."—Judith A. Ramaley,
president, Winona State University


"This book is a 'must-read' for anyone who directs
undergraduates in research. It presents an impressive and rigorous
body of work that brings fresh insights into the field of
undergraduate research. The next generation of scientists will
benefit greatly from the findings and recommendations!"—Jo
Handelsman, Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor, Yale
University
