CAES REU Program Final Wrap Up

Program participants stand next to CAES building

We are excited to officially close out the first Summer of the Center for Advanced Energy Studies’ Advanced Manufacturing for a Sustainable Energy Future Research Experience for Undergraduates sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

“The NSF REU Program at CAES provided an excellent opportunity for a diverse pool of talented students to network with university and national laboratory researchers while fostering their curiosities and training in research practices. The students spent 10 weeks working on research related to advance manufacturing, which culminated in a poster showcase. The showcase was attended by the Deputy Laboratory Director at INL (Dr. Marianne Walck), the Director for the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (Dr. Philip Reppert), the Mayor of the City of Idaho Falls (Rebecca Casper), as well as many INL and University researchers. This was an amazing first year of the program and am excited for the next few!” – Brian Jaques, Ph.D.

Thank you to all of the Boise State University, Idaho State University, University of Idaho and Idaho National Laboratory faculty, staff and students who made this possible!
