Description

Eight students participated in a NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates Site program focused on composites in extreme environments at NC State University during the summer of 2017. Students were polled at the beginning and end of their time to ascertain whether their feelings about research had changed during the research experience. Students were also interviewed in person. While students reported having a fantastic summer, survey questions were sometimes ranked less favorably at the end of the summer than at the beginning. Students reported being interested in graduate school at the beginning of the summer but their professed interest in going to graduate school declined from the beginning of the summer to the end of the summer for three of the eight students.
