The Steppingstone MAgnetic Resonance Training (SMART) Centerís purpose is to bring a research-based science experience to young, science-oriented students in order to meet our mission of "Exciting the next generation of scientists." It offers middle school, high school, and undergraduate college students the opportunity to engage in research experiences that are usually only available to college graduate students.

Students will learn how to design experiments while utilizing a $250,000 electron para-magnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometer, developing a hypothesis to test, designing an experimental protocol to test their hypothesis, learning to collect and analyze data and forming valid conclusions.

There are two components to the program. The first are these training sessions, where students will:

  • Learn to use the instruments
  • Learn what kind of information they can get from the instruments
  • Learn to design experiments which will make use of the instrumentation and data collection & analysis software
Read the SMART Center Brochure and see the SMART Center website for more information.
