At the College of Natural Sciences, discovery begins here. Research by our faculty pushes the boundaries of our knowledge – and improves lives. Students, from first-year undergraduates to doctoral candidates, are essential collaborators throughout the process at Colorado State. We know that great research comes from great people and great connections.
PROGRAMS OF RESEARCH & SCHOLARLY EXCELLENCE
Two CSU mathematics graduate students participated in an internship at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center last summer as a part of the Space Communications and Navigation Internship Project.
A researcher at Colorado State University has developed a potential approach for identifying and understanding dark matter using the soon to be built gigantic particle detectors at the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment
Research highlights power of interactive, gesture-based lessons when teaching abstract math concepts
The work is led by Professor Hortensia Soto and described in a new paper published in Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies. The paper showcases how gestures and body language can be used to explain abstract algebraic ideas that may be difficult for students to engage with through formal teaching methods.
An interdisciplinary team at CSU is using community science and artificial intelligence to help monitor bee species across Colorado
The College of Natural Sciences pays differential tuition for all graduate students on a research assistantship (GTA), teaching assistantship (GTA), or other assistantship (GSA).
