S75: Science as Service: Research-Oriented Service-Learning Projects in Undergraduate Science Programs

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Although science-based service-learning projects have been established at many undergraduate campuses, most concentrate on the application of existing technologies and resources to address community problems. This symposium examines chemistry-oriented service-learning programs and projects that utilize fundamental research carried out by undergraduate students. These projects are designed to encourage learning with a purpose, ensuring that students are able to apply classroom knowledge to real-world problems at the local, national and global level. 

Presider: Adam M. Kiefer, Mercer University
