5 Students Who are Discovery Makers
We learn in different ways. Not just in the classroom, but out in the field – where the action is. We study. Observe. Experience. Because college isn’t just about theory. It’s about creating real-life solutions for real-life problems. We are Discovery Makers.
A national leader in experiential learning, Purdue completes nearly 2,000 undergraduate research projects each year. From anthropology to zoology, undergraduate research adds depth to a student’s college experience and is a significant factor in his or her success. A new publication, The Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research, will debut this fall and feature student articles from faculty-mentored research projects. Published by Purdue University Press, students are invited to submit article proposals through Feb. 15.
Paul Sliker, a senior in professional writing from North Kingstown, Rhode Island, is the journal’s student coordinator. He is responsible for publicity, marketing and establishing a student editorial board. “The journal will provide participating students, whether as authors or the editorial board, an amazing opportunity to learn about the scholarly publishing process,” he says. “And, it’s a great way for high school students to see the kinds of learning experiences that will be available to them at Purdue.”
