The Georgetown University Department of Physics invites undergraduate students to apply for a 10-week summer research program to engage in a focused research project in materials physics, working closely with a faculty mentor and other researchers. Taking advantage of Georgetown's location in the nation's capital, this REU program also features a science-and-society component that allows students to explore the connection between scientific research and the world outside the laboratory. In addition, REU participants join other students in a variety of professional development workshops and social and networking activities.
