Christopher Sanchez, a University of Miami undergraduate student, has been working with CAP scientist Dan Childers for the last two summers on a project in the Tres Rios constructed wetlands. Both have been involved in the Society of Wetland Scientists mentoring program and were recently featured in a video describing the mentoring process.
Christopher is not the first undergraduate to participate in CAP research. Since 2003, CAP has funded 34 undergraduate students to work with scientists through the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
