The Metro Denver STEM Alliance Undergraduate Research Experience Program assists students in developing an introductory research background to supplement their academic learning and support their acquisition of transferable skills to four-year university programs and industry careers.
The LSAMP URE seeks to support student participants in conducting undergraduate research over a one-semester period. In this semester, LSAMP URE participants will engage in at least 30 hours of research activities under the guidance of staff and faculty mentors. Participants will also engage in ongoing cohort meetings and workshops/seminars to gain skills in conducting and presenting research, and will develop a research poster with accompanying abstract. LSAMP URE participants will present their research to peers, faculty, and staff at their designated school, as well as be invited to present at other STEM conference events, such as the MDSA LSAMP CO-WY AMP annual conference.
Through the LSAMP URE program, students will develop transferable skills focusing on achieving and retaining those skills over the long-term. Included are developing skills in scientific research processes, collaboration, presenting to diverse audiences, inclusive practices, identity development, critical thinking, effective reasoning, and creativity. The LSAMP URE is an opportunity for students to co-create their educational experience, supplement their in-class instruction and take their learning to the next level.
If you are ready to dive into STEM research, you should consider applying! The LSAMP URE Program supports students interested in researching a variety of STEM topics including areas in microbiology, computer science, chemistry, physics, math, programming, engineering, biology, astronomy, and more.
The LSAMP URE Participant is a STEM student and LSAMP Scholar interested in furthering academic research and contributing to the knowledge bank in their chosen discipline area. Through research-based workshops, bi-weekly mentor check-ins, and guided research initiatives, LSAMP URE Participants will build transferable skills in core research areas to benefit both long-term academic goals and career growth. LSAMP URE Participants in the LSAMP URE Program will focus on successful completion of a chosen research topic and final presentation to a group of peers and STEM professionals. Students have the option of writing their own unique research question, or developing a question with the help of LSAMP staff.
Our goal is to serve our diverse community and increase both degree and career attainment rates for our STEM students. As a LSAMP URE Participant, you will be supported in achieving this goal.
