  • At its core, TRIP is about providing students with an opportunity to carry out independent research driven by their own curiosity, passion and experience. This goal is accomplished by having students design and perform their own research projects as well as collect, analyze and present their own data. Moreover, students develop their writing and communication skills through blog posts, multiple presentations and a science-focused comic.
