Learning is best done by doing. Hope students are able to do STEM through opportunities in faculty research laboratories as-well-as in course-based research experiences. The 2012 Hope HHMI program supports research efforts of faculty and students through awards to support faculty research programs, awards to support the development of new course-based research experiences and the HHMI research scholars program.
