    I dont know all that much about it but had some eureka students pass through the lab I did my PhD in. It seems an ideal way to gain experience and learn new techniques while earning some money. I would imagine it would be difficult to get a lab aid position in this economic climate.....especially for only a few months of summer. By the time you would be experienced enough to be of help to lab occupants you would be starting back in college......though I guess you might be able to get something on a voluntary basis.
