The REU Seminar Series and Grad Student Panel Discussion are educational and developmental opportunities for REU Interns. Attendance is required for all REU interns. Social events such as Exploring downtown Palo Alto and REU Social are intended to give REU interns an opportunity to relax, mingle, and network with each other as well as mentors and faculty.
Attendance is highly recommended. The "How to Make a Good Poster" workshop offers participants a unique opportunity to develop important poster-making skills. It will be very helpful in preparation for Presentation Day. Attendance is required for all REU interns. The REU program culminates in Presentation Day, when interns will share and enjoy their accomplishments over the ten-week program.
