  • College of the Sequoias student research projects.

    Fall 2013 thru Fall 2017

  • SURGE Research Projects are to increase the exposure of community college

    Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) majors to

    laboratory research equipment, research methodologies, and current research.

    Student projects are advised by COS faculty and partnering STEM community

    leaders. In conclusion to their research/projects, students develop a STEM poster

    and present at the annual COS STEM Symposium. SURGE would like to thank all

    the advisors for their mentoring, guidance, and personal interest in providing

    experiential learning opportunities for COS students.
