    take their lessons beyond the safety net of a classroom My job is to introduce my students to the ambiguities frustrations and exhilaration of scientific research Research is not so clear cut and its lack of clarity can be a shock Prof Julie Dahlstrom In a classroom setting we usually emphasize the problems with straightforward clear answers whose correctness can be assessed readily said physics professor Julie Dahlstrom My job is to introduce my students to the ambiguities frustrations and exhilaration of scientific research Research is not so clear cut and its lack of clarity can be a shock Prof Dahlstrom worked with two SURE students this summer Brianna Faint 14 a chemistry major from Kenosha and Zachary Troyer 14 a physics and mathematics major from Joliet Ill Both students contributed to Prof Dahlstrom s ongoing research studying diffuse interstellar bands Read more about this project SURE provides initial exposure to extremely valuable research experience which helps to bridge our students to research offerings at other institutions or in industry Prof Dahlstrom said Agreed Prof Crosby I regularly hear back from alumni who highlight their SURE experiences as being important to their admission to graduate school and medical school or critical to their success in their jobs We know that participation in SURE or semester research has measurable impacts on important student development metrics such as individual growth persistence in the face of obstacles and career orientation Opening students eyes to new options Isa Fritz 10 participated in the SURE program in 2008 studying optical trapping with physics professor Brian Schwartz Because the Carthage SURE program is designed to mimic professional research labs I gained valuable experience with designing and building my own research experiment she said Unlike in the classroom where problems and methods are now laid out in front of you SURE students quickly learn how to create a research question get background information design the experiment fix their inevitable mistakes and conduct the test Isa is now working toward a master s degree in aerospace engineering at Purdue University My specific area is astronautical engineering with a focus on astrodynamics she said I hope to do mission design or spacecraft attitude dynamics for SpaceX or NASA The SURE program was my first research experience It helped me land other research internships the next two summers and ultimately helped me get accepted into graduate school Erin Zimmerman 11 Erin Zimmerman 11 participated in the SURE program in 2009 studying enantiomers of beta blockers with chemistry professor Kevin Morris Enantiomers are molecules that are mirror images of each other they look identical but in pharmaceuticals can have very different and sometimes dangerous effects That summer made me realize that I actually liked doing research said Erin who graduated in May with majors in chemistry and theatre and a minor in biology Now she is headed for the University of Wisconsin Madison where she will pursue a Ph D in analytical chemistry The SURE program was my first research experience
