Two weeks ago the undergraduate researchers began their research at the Fields Institute. They will continue working until the end of August and have already been meeting regularly with their supervisors. Each researcher is part of a group of undergraduate peers who are supervised by a team of research experts.
On the first day, the supervising researchers presented topics for students to choose from. Groups were formed on the basis of ranking system in which students voted on their project choices.
