"Many students who have taken a CURE with me have told me later that it was really influential in terms of what they decided to do next. In some cases, it was the reason they decided to pursue an undergraduate research experience later. It was the reason they wanted to go to grad school. It even built their confidence in science a lot more, because they had gone through this sometimes difficult process of planning an experiment, collecting the data, working with other people, writing it up, and presenting a poster. These are high level, challenging activities. And they did it. They felt success from it."
