Is it too late to find summer research volunteer opportunities? I just finished my undergrad freshman year in California but am spending my summer in Seattle. Because I started college as a second semester student, I do not have much 'direct' physics experience and I imagine it will be difficult to find research projects that could me. Most of the physical science research in Seattle is done through the University of Washington, which got out a few weeks ago. Is it still worthwhile to solicit myself to UW physics researchers, and does anyone know of any research done around Seattle with other institutions? If not, what would be a worthwhile academic use of my summer? Thanks!
