Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Writing A Scientific Review

My favorite approach to be introduced to scientific research is to write a scientific review. It helps to develop your ability to read peer-reviewed literature, understand what is already known about your topic of interest, and often leads to hypothesis formation for next steps in the field.

Designing a Podcast

This kind of project allows you to create a dynamic to explore new topics through discussion, reflection, and commentary. The sky is the limit with what you would like to do with this. From deep dives into scientific topics to interviewing science-related people about their journeys, to reflecting on how science help us to understand the world around us and its limits, it can be a great way to experience and engage the scientific community.

Translating Peer Literature into Audio for Scientists to Read on The Go

This is a project I have always wanted to do. We would need to explore the correct way and forum to present others' work. I think this could be a great project to get exposure to literature reading and problem solving how to present figures without being able to see them.
