CREST Science and Computing Research Summer Program
July 1-5, 2019 (not July 4), 9:00 am - 4:00 pm M-F
Students who have completed grades 8-12; Up to 24 students
Location: UC Merced
In this session, participants will engage in computer-driven science research-oriented activities in a group setting, led by faculty and scientists in the National Science Foundation-funded CREST center at UC Merced, which focuses on engineering, biological science, physics, chemistry and computational science. Hands-on research-based activities, projects, lectures, interactions with scientists and engineers and lab tours will enable students to get a better understanding of what it is like to do science research and what it is like to be a scientist. Through these activities, students will get a glimpse into the importance of research computing that connects all aspects of scientific research.
