Description:
The IDEA Incubator is an exciting program that seeks to nurture innovations in porous materials by 'Integrating Discovery, Engineering and Art' (IDEA). This 10-week research immersive program gives undergraduate students in chemical engineering, bioengineering and chemistry fields a chance to conduct semi-independent research and participate in arts-based learning.

Students will participate in 'unseminars' designed to improve scientific communication to a wide range of audiences through art. Workshops will bridge engineering and art through a variety of forms such as screen printing, drawings, storyboards, and more. These sessions will build student confidence and enhance their public speaking skills. The education component of this REU utilizes art as a tool to help students contextualize their research projects with a sense of scale. The research projects all relate to porous media with catalysis and bioengineering applications.
