Our students' enthusiasm for their work is contagious.
Alexis Bennett discusses her Eureca project, "Flying in a Skirt: An Examination of Gender Dynamics in Comic Books".
In "Gender Terms for Married Couples on Cumberland Cemetery Tombstones", Adrienne Showalter and Paola Pedraza-Rivera discuss their research.
Michael Spering discusses his internship accomplishments in "Getting the Word Out About Free Software: A Digital Media Experience".
By ‘research’, we mean not only the laboratory science, but also scholarship and creative activity. In brief, any student in any discipline may engage in research. Why do we believe research is so important to a student’s intellectual development and growth?
Working on research projects helps students develop skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, team work, and technology. Not only are students becoming adept at the methods of inquiry in their own disciplines, they may also investigate new areas of study.
One unique feature about the research environment at Penn State Brandywine is that students have the opportunity to complete research projects before their senior year.
Students who complete research projects have opportunities to present their work at the annual on-campus EURECA (Exhibition of Undergraduate Research Enterprise and Creative Accomplishment), as well as at local, regional, and national professional meetings.
At Penn State Brandywine, we celebrate and promote undergraduate student achievement.
