Schmahl Science Workshops is pleased to offer our individual investigations and research seminar series. This program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to build on an interest in research and/or engineering and develop skills, knowledge and analytics critical to success.
The student will pursue a topic (or topics) of his/her own interest in a real lab situation, paired with a scientist/engineer mentor who has experience in the chosen research field. Individual Investigations and Seminar series include training, as warranted, in lab safety, literature search, lab notebook documentation, lab techniques and data analysis. Participants will also benefit from contextual and historical perspective on the development of the specific scientific concepts and the forward looking relevance to ongoing exploration and research.
By pursuing multiple, well defined investigations, students will have the chance to explore their interests and learn about the subject matter area as well as what it is like to perform the procedures and protocols associated with investigation of the topic. Individual Investigations and Seminars are a one-to-one pairing of student and mentor and are scheduled individually per the student and mentor availability.

Our lab is currently open. During the pandemic closures, many of our seminars were revised to also work well in a Zoom setting which may be preferable as a starting point. For a complete list seminar topics, Zoom-ready and in-person, please see the list below.
