The scholars were engaged in a 12-weeks Summer Research Immersion (SRI) through remote learning and online workshops. We designed a curriculum course for the SRI based on available online resources. The SRI included 2 weeks of professional development and responsible conduct of research workshops accompanied by 3 weeks of virtual scientific-based courses to train scholars in the basics of experimental design, rigor, reproducibility, and good record-keeping techniques, in the remaining 7 weeks, scholars engaged in authentic research.
