Research Experience Vitalizing Science - University Program

Funded by a generous grant from Chevron, CSUB's REVS-UP program groups 74 high school students and 20 high school teachers with CSUB faculty and students to work for four weeks each summer on science-related research projects. Projects cover areas of biology, chemistry, computer science, earth system science, geology, math and physics. Some of the research includes nocturnal spiders, robot programming, energy conversion in wind turbines and solar panels, and experiments to measure the speed and nature of light.

During the program, high school students earn university credit that can start them on the path to a science degree. High school teachers learn valuable research methods and activities they can take back to their classrooms and pass on to their students. Additionally, the program enables CSUB faculty to advance their research, and CSUB students get the opportunity to learn by teaching.
