SRAP group trip to the Snowy Range Mountains
Six weeks ago, twenty-two high school
students from around the United States arrived at the University of Wyoming to
work in research labs across campus. They were part of the Summer Research
Apprentice Program (SRAP) and had little prior knowledge of the field in which
they would be working. Today, however, that has all changed. While they may
have known little about lasers or electric cars, mutant cells or perspectives
on inspiration, they are now fully informed. Tomorrow, after weeks of hard work
and dedicated research, these students will present their findings to each
other and their mentors at the 2013 SRAP Symposium.
“This summer has gone by so fast,” says SRAP
Coordinator Lisa Abeyta. “But, in this short period of time, I have been able
to witness twenty-two wonderful students transform into amazing researchers.”
