Institutions of higher education are being challenged to strengthen undergraduate education. One strategy for meeting students' needs is to incorporate research activities into the undergraduate experience. Each project can be tailored to fit the student's research interest and contribute to a faculty member's research productivity. An honors project also provides a unique capstone experience for students, allowing a glimpse into graduate school. An overview of two undergraduates' honors projects in functional and creative design and their research activities are reported. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
