Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
The National Science Foundation established the Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program to provide students with the opportunity for "hands-on" experiences in research laboratories at their universities — in physics, biology, geology, and other subjects. A survey of faculty awardees, and of students participating in the program between 1987 and 1989, was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of the program, and possible areas of improvement.
