Edited by Desmond H. Murray, Sherine O. Obare, and James H. Hageman

ACS Symposium Series

  • The three co-editors are longtime advocates of "early research" which they define as authentic research conducted sooner than traditionally done, namely in a high school, community college, or college undergraduate setting.
  • Advocates that all students should participate in early research, not just advanced or accomplished students.
  • Humans are by nature curious, and early research in STEM education allows students to explore their curiosity in an active learning setting.
  • Provides successful examples of course-based undergraduate research experiences.
