NSF-funded site looks to inspire next generation of bright researchers

Thanks to a recent award from the National Science Foundation (NSF), Arizona State University’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering have established a program to search seldom-tapped talent pools of students to work on another untapped resource: solar power.

The three-year, $314,261 award will fund an annual summer program aimed at exposing undergraduate students to research opportunities to which they might not otherwise have access. Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Site: Solar Energy Research for the Terawatt Challenge is a program planned to host eight students a session. It will incorporate workshops, seminars and hands-on research experience that culminate in participating students traveling to a conference to present their work.

Assistant professor of electrical engineering, Zachary Holman, the principal investigator on the award, says he’s excited to develop a pipeline for talented students to learn about research and the possibilities of solar power.
