Engagement in undergraduate research is known to provide numerous benefits for participants. These benefits include a more positive attitude about science, an improved understanding of fundamental scientific principles, and the ability to analyze and interpret data. We also find that students who have engaged in this experience report higher self-confidence in their overall scientific abilities."
