Carthage students selected to participate in SURE work with a faculty mentor on a new or developing line of research. SURE research activities are expected to contribute in a meaningful way to the education of the student and to the research agenda of the faculty mentor.
In past years, SURE participants have:
- Studied computational fluid dynamics modeling of an inertial particle separator in microgravity
- Designed and built biofilm detectors
- Developed adaptive optics demonstrations for museum installations
- Developed low-cost seismic monitoring stations
- Studied the effects of oxytocin on object recognition tasks in rats and its relation to autism
- Used GIS to find high priority neighborhoods for lead-free efforts
“Being able to just focus on one topic and see the continuation is great.
There’s a good level of achievement you feel as you progress.”
