"Learning is intense when one is doing research. In the pursuit of primary data, one acquires skills that cannot be found in books, including time-management techniques and the ability to think quickly and solve difficult problems."

"Undergraduate students' enthusiasm and ingenious approaches to research problems can be very stimulating to the research program. Working with student and faculty collaborators on research problems of common interest is rewarding, intellectually satisfying, and best of all, fun."  Halaby, Reginald.  2001.  Promoting Undergraduate Research in ScienceThe Scientist 15[8]:35, Apr. 16, 2001.

"You learn to become a scientist by doing science, not by studying science in textbooks. Undergraduate research experiences lead to better prepared and motivated individuals (graduate student, professional school student, educator)."
