Oct 28, 2008 – CU Student, Walter Lewis, placed first at the NSF HBCU-UP Research Conference. The project is the result of his research conducted at the Brookhaven National Laboratory during his internships in the summers of 2006 and 2007.
Under the support of a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) hosted the 2008 HBCU-UP National Research Conference last week in Atlanta, Georgia.  According to the AAAS, the conference features undergraduate student research and institutional strategies to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and research at HBCUs. The HBCU-UP program champions for the important role that HBCUs have in increasing the numbers of underrepresented minorities that are well prepared for participation and leadership at every level of education and research in STEM.
