REEL students, faculty, and staff have communicated their findings at more than 250 presentations during the initial 6 years of the program. These have included presentations at symposia sponsored by REEL, at the Central Regional American Chemistry Society meeting (CERM, CERMACS), at the Biennial Conference on Chemical Education, and other venues. Contributors from OSU have been quite prolific and presentations have been made by students that participated in REEL research modules in analytical, general, and organic chemistry courses. Faculty and staff associated with these research modules have also been eager to share their work.
