The program places undergraduate science and engineering students in UT laboratories to provide mentoring in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) research and careers. Topics explored this summer include a performance assessment of green storm water infrastructure, detection and prevention of invasive species from retail stores, using geographic information system (GIS) to characterize water usage in the Lake Erie western basin, water treatment options for the removal of cyanotoxins, VHS fish virus in the Great Lakes, analyzing historical microcystin data and improving the ELISA method for measuring microcystin concentrations.

The research projects were conducted by students from UT, Bowling Green State University, Cheyney University, Iowa State University, Pitzer University, University of South Carolina, University of Colorado, Central State and Hanover College.
