As a leader in environmental science research, CU students interested in conducting undergraduate research have access to a wealth of resources and opportunities. Many of us at INSTAAR mentor undergraduate students, but I would like to share information about a new program that pairs early career ENVS work-study students with research labs at INSTAAR. To maximize gains from undergraduate research opportunities for both mentors and mentees, this program also offers participating students training and support which compliments the activities of the host lab. Come learn more about how you can mentor an undergraduate in your lab and hear about the exciting independent work of Hana Fancher, who is working with members of the Townsend Lab on methane production from oil palm effluent settling ponds in Costa Rica.
