Mescalero Apache High School students, Joseph Foy (Junior) and Michael Brusuelas, (Senior)were accepted into the 2020 Summer Undergraduate Research for Native Americans (IOU-NA program) at the University of Arizona in Tucson Az.
What is IOU-NA?
The Integrated Optics for Undergraduate Native Americans (IOU-NA) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is designed for Native American students interested in participating in hands-on research opportunities in top laboratories in optics and photonics, as well as in hydrology, astronomy, soil sciences, atmospheric sciences, and environmental sciences. Selected students are paired with a research project complementing their interests and goals.
IOU-NA students will also participate in Native American focused workshops facilitated by University of Arizona’s Native American-serving entities, gain hands-on experience in CIAN’s culturally relevant two-week Native American focused Optics Research Workshop (ORW), attend presentations given by Native American STEM graduate students and faculty, as well as participate in other activities designed to support Native American Undergraduate students. Pictures from our IOU-NA Event are included below.
Congratulations Mescalero students – what a great achievement!
