Three different course models devoted to preparing science and engineering students for successful research endeavors were offered at three research institutions. Goals of this work include (a) involving students early in their academic career so they can gain the most out of subsequent research experiences and (b) providing basic skills to make the transition into the research environment easier. These preresearch course models include a semester-long seminar, a 1-week faculty-led "boot camp," and an intense 3-day peer mentor led course.
