Research Week 2016



Research Week 2016

The Building Scholars 2016 Summer Research Week (SRW) took place from Monday July 11, 2016 to Friday July 15, 2016. There were a total of 10 modules from main discipline-specific themes such as Research and the Scientific Method, Writing and the Peer Review Process, Introduction to Problem Solving in Engineering, Research Safety, Ethics and Compliance, Introduction to the Psychology of Language and Bilingualism, Introduction to GPS, Mapping, and Map-¬‐Making, Molecular Research Tools, Introduction to Statistical Analysis, Introduction to Forensic Chemistry, and Cops, Courts and Intelligence Interrogation. Each module was about 3 hours long with a 5-minute break midway and were conducted at an interval of 2 modules a day. The students were separated into two cohorts of 20 each to alleviate crowding in the classroom. Each cohort attended a module in the morning from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and would rotate with the other cohort to attend the second module that took place from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Students completed 30 hours of lecture and activities to expand their research potential and experience.
