July 9, 2012

qesst freshman engineering research experienceThe UNM QESST Engineering Research Center will host a one-week, residential summer research experience from July 8-14 for incoming freshmen interested in engineering and computer science majors.  The students will learn about solar cell technologies, applications and research at UNM’s School of Engineering.  They will also be given the opportunity to hone their math and college survival skills.   

(These girls just soldered "solar cockroaches" that shake when they're put in sunlight.)
