About the S.U.R.F.

The S.U.R.F. event was created in order to showcase the undergraduate research work of STEM Program students. At the S.U.R.F. event, the student researchers will present on projects from a wide variety of STEM disciplines. The event is a great practice opportunity for students who will be presenting their findings at national conferences, such as the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) at the University of Montana. The S.U.R.F. also gives other students on campus the chance to learn about undergraduate research and the STEM program, as well as the opportunity to interact with current STEM students and faculty/staff.

The Research

The Kapiolani Community College STEM Program’s innovative Undergraduate Research Experience (URE) provides students with numerous opportunities to participate in faculty-mentored research projects based on competition, group, and independent research models.
