Student Research

Undergraduate research is an important part of the STEM curriculum within many tribal and Native serving colleges. The opportunity to conduct original research strengthens learning and increases student interest in STEM disciplines. Additionally, research projects devised by students often focus on the needs of their own communities and frequently honor traditional values and unique cultural knowledge, producing innovative projects and new approaches to scholarship.
     To highlight and support this work, Native Science Report sponsors an annual Student Research Showcase. From the 2020-2021 academic year, five submissions were chosen for publication. Each will be incrementally published during the summer of 2021. Winning submissions from previous years can be found in the Student Research archives. Congratulations to all who participated our showcase!
