One of the best ways to know if you want to do a particular thing with your life is to do the thing, full time, for a while.  That's why seven UMD students took a pass on going home, summer jobs or the beach and opted instead for the BURST: Biology Undergraduate Research in Science and Technology program, a 40-plus-hour-a-week-for-10-week program that lets them focus on their chosen topic and their research for that time.
