In this paper we report on the study of variable stars as part of a program at the University of North Texas to encourage students to participate more in the sciences and mathematics. Most introductory science courses do not give students a lasting feeling for science, so this program is being developed to introduce students to the techniques of science by allowing them to play active roles in variable star research.
