The Oak Ridge Science Semester (ORSS), founded by Denison University and managed most recently by the ACM, offered a unique opportunity for undergraduates to immerse themselves in research at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), the nation’s largest multiprogram research laboratory. Mentored by ORNL scientists, students pursued questions in biosciences, chemistry and nuclear chemistry, computer science, earth and geosciences, energy, engineering, environmental and marine sciences, mathematics and statistics, physics and biophysics, and more. Students also participated in workshops on scientific communication, career development, graduate school preparation, poster presentations, and tours of ORNL research facilities.
