He received feedback from attendees who were interested in the results of his research project that focused on preparing community college students to work in research labs on a four-year campus. For Jorge, this opportunity enabled him to network with the representatives from institutions in Texas, Arizona, Missouri, and others. Overall, the greatest success was promoting the LSAMP program and attendees expressed an interest in bringing an LSAMP program to their own campus.
