Abstract:

During the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, experimental research groups face a unique challenge: how to train undergraduates without access to labs. We share our experience developing entirely virtual undergraduate research internships and make a case for virtual research as a complement to traditional undergraduate mentoring, even after the resolution of the pandemic.
