Immersive education through research experience

Instead of relying on textbooks and classical experiments with known results, LTU focuses on experiences where students learn through scientific experiments. This style of teaching and immersive learning can lead to new discoveries.

“Take a sip from MiCUP”

These workshops are made possible, in part, by funding from the Michigan College/University Partnership (MiCUP). MiCUP is a program from the King-Chavez-Parks Initiative that Michigan's Department of Labor and Economic Growth established in 2000. It gives educationally underrepresented citizens an opportunity to complete college degrees, often in STEM fields, which then lead to good jobs.

The Immersive Learning Experiences event is free and open to all HFC students. For questions or more information, contact Scott Corp at
