Description/Abstract

A successful undergraduate research endeavor can be the ultimate learning experience for any student. The intrinsic activities range from choosing a research topic, to performing the work, to evaluating its efficacy, to writing its story in an inviting and professional way. Often, our best undergraduate researchers come to us lacking confidence in the prospect of participating in a student research project. And we, as mentors, are inclined to allay any fears about the world of research. In this talk, we offer five heuristics to facilitate the research process for both the student and the mentor.
