In three days, nine CSUF students and two faculty mentors will board an airplane in Los Angeles, and depart on the 6-week adventure to the other side of the planet with the CSUF international study program we call Science and Math Research in Thailand (SMRT). Those six weeks will be filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences for these CSUF students. Their adventures will stem from the rigors of participating in an international research collaboration, the excitement of making new friend from an unfamiliar culture, and the challenges of life in a foreign-speaking country. This web site will serve as an outlet for recording the experiences of all SMRT scholars (and occasionally of their mentors) so that others may live the adventure vicariously. Selected posts will also appear on the SMRT Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CSUF.SMRT) and possibly on a Twitter feed if Dr. Sandquist can figure that one out.
