FYRE: First- Year Research Experience

In this spring semester program, participants can earn Honors course credit to conduct a mentored, semester-long experimental project in an OU research laboratory. FYRE is specifically designed to allow OU undergraduates in their first year at OU to participate in research, regardless of experience. FYRE is currently open only to Honors students.

The FYRE program started in 2011 as a joint creation of the Honors College and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.  The program current involves research groups from colleges all across OU, including the College of Arts and Sciences; Gallogly College of Engineering; the College of Atmospheric and Geopraphic Sciences; and Newbourne College of Earth and Energy.
