The "Practices and Perspectives" program is designed to provide an experience that combines practical training in specific research techniques (practices) with activities designed to put the research into the context of larger goals of modern science and technology (perspectives). The program will also provide career planning and management components. For information about REU 2004 including available projects and application materials, click here.
