Chevron REVS-UP Program at CSUB Ends On High Note with Poster Competition

Throughout the month of June, California State University, Bakersfield’s Chevron Fab Lab hosted the Research Experience Vitalizing Science Program (REVS-UP). REVS-UP, which began on June 4, will conclude with a poster presentation and demonstration from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 28, in the Student Housing East Multipurpose Room. This year, the program celebrates its 11th anniversary on campus.  

Funded by the Chevron Corporation, REVS-UP offers hands-on experiences for 75 local high school students and incoming CSUB freshmen STEM majors in interest areas, including: biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics and physics. The various research has taken place in laboratories on campus.  

“REVS-UP exposes students to the challenges and excitement of original scientific research,” said Kathleen Madden, Dean of CSUB’s School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Engineering. “Working on a research project can be a formative experience, motivating the next generation of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers to pursue a STEM education.”

Project posters and demonstrations will explore cybersecurity, analysis of vesicular basalts, chaos theory and fractal geometry, thermal properties of materials, crude oil adhesion, electrodynamics and quantum mechanics, phytopathogenic bacteria, and more.
