CaNSaM offers undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in active numerical and computational research.  The participants will gain insights and develop skills for identifying and solving problems that are amenable to computer simulation or solution. They will also develop visual, written, and oral skills in communicating mathematics and statistics.  The close contacts developed in this program will be an incentive for participants further study and eventual employment in mathematics or statistics. Participants in the program will become role models for underrepresented minorities to help encourage mathematically talented students to pursue careers in mathematics and statistics.  Students in the program will be encouraged to make themselves visible in their respective communities.
