Perch: Equalizing STEM Research Opportunities

Akira Nishii

BSE ’19 & BS ’19

Perch is a new student organization that aims to improve the undergraduate lab application process. We plan to achieve this through an online platform that centralizes communication between research faculty and students, as well as a standardized system of training and certifying research skills. The certifications (in laboratory techniques) we provide can be uploaded onto the online application platform to make students more attractive candidates to laboratories.
