Participate in hands-on work with Alberta Innovates-funded research groups at the University of Lethbridge
Join a team of PhD, Master and Bachelor students
Work on multidisciplinary projects which may include:
Work in areas on the cutting edge of science not yet in textbooks
However, HYRS is much more than laboratory research! Additional activities include:
Guest speakers talk about their careers in research
HYRS Virtual Showcase Night where students invite their parents, mentors, and members of the public to view their research in a symposium setting at the U of L
Meet other students with similar interests
