Kirpa Batth, biochem major, is currently researching a rare local flower with Aimee Wyrick, chair of the biology department. Research as an undergraduate student isn’t available at most schools, which offers Kirpa an advantage over her peers. Talk to your professors about how you can participate in research.
Student-created and student-led, SPARK (Science Presentations And Research for Kids) takes science into local schools for demos and inspiration. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can get involved.
The chemistry department’s state-of-the art microwave plasma atomic emission spectrometer (MPAES) can measure the amount of over 60 elements in many types of samples, and is sensitive enough to detect one part in a billion. And unlike most schools, you can use this machine in labs yourself--no waiting around for a TA to do it. Talk to your professors to find out which courses use the MPAES.
PQ Rise will be held for the first time during the summer of 2019 as an extension of PUC’s popular PacificQuest science experience. PacificQuest initially began as a program designed for middle school students. The immersive PQ Rise experience was created as a next-step program for those interested in STEM fields, aiming to provide freshman and sophomore high school students with a hands-on introduction to the sciences.
