The science, math, and research training program (SMART) is a first-year course that provides an integrated introduction to biology and chemistry, along with corresponding courses in calculus 1 and 2.
A Smart ApproachFirst-year students in the SMART course spent the semester studying bacteria’s resistance to antibiotics and creating new chemical compounds that are more effective against staph and E. coli. They presented their findings in a poster session.
A new program exposes students to life in the lab, sparking their interest in science.
