I am looking for responsible undergraduate students seeking research opportunities through UCARE. However, we will also accept hourly undergraduate and graduate students. The Project PAC (PI: Dr. Jessica Namkung, Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders) is aimed at identifying explicit links among cognitive (e.g., executive functions), language, and foundational math (e.g., number sense) processes that underlie pre-algebra competence for students with and without math learning difficulties. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn foundational skills to conduct field-based research (e.g., IRB training, recruitment processes, administering assessments to local middle schoolers, managing data, analyzing data) and develop your research ideas to present at the spring research fair.
