Project Schedule


The students' activities, from a broad perspective, will be based on a weekly program. From Monday through Friday the students will work on their specified project roughly from 9 am until 5 pm with an hour for lunch. During this period each student will interact with the project mentor and the other students that may be in the research group.

At the first meeting with the student, the project mentor will provide the student with a reading list and an outline of a specific plan that will lead the student from a dependent role toward an independent achievement in the 10-week period. The students will have the opportunity to participate fully in the activities of their research groups.

During the final week there will be a poster session at Jefferson Lab in which all the students will present their research results. One or two "winners" will be chosen and small prizes will be awarded. All in all, we expect that the unique REU experience at Jefferson Lab will stimulate the students’ professional development, expose them to a variety of career options, and deepen their practical, hands-on knowledge of the world of research.
