NSF Summer Research Preparing Southeast Students for STEM Careers
For some, the lazy days of summer are a welcome respite. And for others, like Southeast Missouri State University students Blake Trickey and Tyler Howard, the past couple of months have been spent facilitating artificial photosynthesis and working with 3D micro-lasers.
Trickey and Howard are spending the summer in National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) - one in the United States and the other overseas. The two are making the most of their time in preparation for careers in the sciences after graduation.
