Students in the Natural Science Division have the opportunity to work alongside professors in relevant scientific research. Research is constantly being conducted by division professors on a wide variety of topics.
Being involved in a research project allows students to practically apply the concepts they are being taught in the classroom. Conducting research allows students to develop their creativity as well as critical and analytical thinking skills, gain hands-on experience with scientific equipment, and learn how to present research results to the scientific community.
Such experience will help students gain entrance to professional programs and prepare them for what they might experience there. Students who choose to pursue a career, rather than a professional program, will have sharpened problem-solving and analytical skills that will be an asset in every field.
