I loved getting to spend the summer in some of the most beautiful places in California with a group of amazing people.
Hannah Roodenrijs, UC Berkeley
It’s like summer camp with a scientific twist.
Molly Nagle, UC Santa Cruz
Before this I had never conducted research or worked in a lab, but now I am very comfortable with the scientific process.
Kai Wilmsen, Santa Barbara
We were given tons of room to be creative with our research topics. I was excited to see the entire project through because I genuinely had interest in the topic.
Andray Cardoza, UC Santa Barbara
This course reaffirmed my love for doing research and being out in the field, and helped set me back on the path that I know is best for my future well-being and happiness.
Drew Filous, UC Santa Cruz
I’ve never felt so confident in not only forming questions about the world around me, but also in my ability to turn those into testable hypotheses.
Katie Ohlin, UC Davis
The accessibility of our professors and the push to learn and enjoy, not memorize to get a grade, allowed for so much more learning to happen.
Laurel Bowling, UC San Diego Spring 2018
I’ve outgrown my intimidation of working closely with faculty.
McKenna Leighton, Santa Cruz Summer 2016
The immersive nature of this course really pushed me outside of my comfort zone and taught me how to do science in a way that I do not think I could have learned in a traditional classroom.
Annie Radigan, Los Angeles Fall 2016
This has been an experience I’ll never forget.
Michael May, UC San Diego Fall 2014
My research, writing, and public speaking skills have improved and I am certain that this is a result of this class.
Ian Perrett, UC Los Angeles Summer 2017
This course has given me an in-depth understanding of scientific research that I haven’t gained anywhere else. I have learned more about what a career in this field would look like in the last 50 days than the rest of my undergraduate career.
