Besides accumulating relevant knowledge, the projects are intended to help students develop some of the skills needed to conduct research:

- How to self-organize and operate as members of a research team.
- How to find relevant information in the literature, organize & present it to other team members and to the wider community.
- How to use some of the relevant tools (latex, beamer, overleaf, meld etc.)
- How to make scientific presentations to various audiences.

The projects are intended to stimulate as much as possible student initiative, self-organization and creativity. They are led by students for the benefit of students -- including for the benefit of further generations.
