A plug for two programs that are happening at MSU this coming summer: The first is a new Research Experience for Teachers (RET) site. See this article for more information. Myself and a couple colleagues from computer science will host one of the projects. The second summer program is our continuing Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program entitled Research and Development of Algorithms in a Software Factory. This is the second year of the site; we had great projects last summer and I am looking forward to working with the next group of students this coming summer. If you are an undergraduate student (or a teacher), please feel free to contact me about either program.
