The Keep Engaging Youth in Science program connects Arizona high school students with UA researchers and staff, helping them to gain a better understading of the world of research, and their place in it.
Two UA student teams from the UA are conducting experiments in zero gravity this week as part of NASA's Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program. The teams are among 14 from universities across the nation whose projects were selected by NASA.
Sixteen UA doctoral students have received Achievement Rewards for College Scientists awards for their academic achievement and contributions to their fields. The students are investigating cancer, diabetes, optics and imaging, among other topics.
