The Nerd Superbowl: the Hidden Gems of REU

You might call it the “Nerd Superbowl,” but it is lots of fun. In this new video about the NIMBioS REU program, find out what REU participant Alice Bugman (above) means when she describes one of the extra-curricula REU activities as kinda nerdy. For eight weeks each summer, undergraduates in math, biology and related fields work on teams to conduct original research at NIMBioS as a part of our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU). The video includes interviews with past participants, including Bugman, Reka Keleman, Lindsay Lee and Dana Botesteanu, and also Dr. Suzanne Lenhart, who organizes the program. The deadline for applying to the 2012 REU is February 17. For more information, details on the 2012 projects, and an online application, click here.
