My project aims to create a web page on the University of Iowa’s Biology Department website to provide undergraduates with information and testimonials about what it is like to be an undergraduate research assistant in various research labs in the department. Previously, the department’s web page only contained information about professors’ research topic and this was written at a language level that only upper-level undergraduate students could understand. The information and testimonials I have written are at a level a lower level student could comprehend. The testimonials come from undergraduates currently working in different research labs and the topics span from what they do in the lab to what they wish they had known before joining. With this project, I hope to reach and encourage more undergraduates, especially first-and second-year, to get involved in research.
