Considerations for our current spring round of Muser

Muser Spring Round for Fall 2020 projects is now underway.  We decided to go forward with our schedule, because, for some mentors and students, this is a wonderful opportunity to look optimistically forward to fall 2020 and have an ongoing, virtual program that can run in spite of the chaos in the world right now.  If you are in this category, then we invite you to join us for this round.
