To improve the quality of undergraduate science education at Arizona State University's West campus, a course-based undergraduate research experience (CURE) class was implemented, in which students develop their own hypotheses, design experiments, and gather their own data to try to answer a research question. Three modules were developed, the first examined capsaicinoid content and of hot peppers, the second used wild bee and plant populations, and a third explored the suitability of using plants to remediate metal pollution in mine soils. The class has been successful in facilitating student participation in research and the presentation of their findings at conferences through talks and posters. Future development and expansion of the class is planned for the coming semesters to improve the class and make it available to significantly more students.
