Research: Research is the exciting reward of studying chemistry, math, physics, biology, geology and all other scientific fields. Students at UW-Stevens Point have the opportunity to participate in independent research projects. Our students have the opportunity to discover something that no one else has ever done and be the first person in the world with that information. Unlike the normal classwork, where assignments are based upon existing procedures and the idea that you need to come up is the "standard answer," research is different. Research uses the fundamental "standard answers" as a starting point. The ultimate solution to a research project may ultimately be a procedure that you invent. Every bit of information you possess has a potential of being the key to your solving a tough research problem. Knowing the "standard answers" allows you to progress rapidly towards a goal. Creativity and attitude combined with a broad background of knowledge allows you to solve problems no one else has solved before.
