Summer days bring pool time, sunshine, hanging out with friends, and sleeping long into the morning for some college students. It can be a quieter time of year with a break from a busy school schedule. But for other students, summer days bring lab research, exciting discoveries, and a one-of-a-kind scientific experience.
