NASEM Report on Undergraduate Research in STEM

From National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM):

The call for expanding undergraduates' access to research experiences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) raises questions about their use and potential to increase students' interest and persistence in these disciplines. A new NASEM report, Undergraduate Research Experiences for STEM Students:  Successes, Challenges, and Opportunities, examines the evidence on undergraduate research experiences (UREs) and CUREs and recommends more well-designed research to gain a deeper understanding of how these experiences affect different students and to examine the aspects of UREs that are most beneficial.
