CIC Summer REU Program

Our 8-week REU program encourages undergraduates to participate in research and science communication for sustainable catalysis. For our 2021 program, undergraduates affiliated from 4 institutions (Boston College, University of California Los Angeles, University of Houston and University of North Carolina) worked closely with faculty and other researchers to develop their problem-solving skills and gain exposure to cutting-edge chemical research. In addition, a variety of outreach projects were made, including interviews, blog posts and even TikTok videos!
