Seniors Get Hands-On in Science Research Program
Seven seniors spent the past summer exploring hands-on, scientific research through Holton's immersive Science Research Program.
The Science Research Program gives a group of Upper School students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a professional research laboratory setting—an experience that builds familiarity, skills, and confidence, while also helping students expand their network and explore college and career options.
Each student explored a topic alongside a mentor at one of Holton's partner institutions throughout the immersive, eight-week summer internship. The participating students, topics, and partners were:
- Bilena Araya '24: Molecular Imaging at Howard University Hospital
- Kendall Frederick '24: Image Processing Methods for Supersonic Free-Flight Optical-Tracking at University of Maryland
- Sophia King '24: Bacterial Growth of Neisseria gonorrhoaeae at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
- Karolina Lickunas '24: Engineering Micro-Scale Pseudo-Axon Fibers at Georgetown University
- Anne Lippard '24: Swept-Tip Blade Fabrication at University of Maryland
- Avery Rudge '24: Evaluation of Biomarkers of Cardiovascular Disease After Traumatic Brain Injury at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences
- Julia Ryan '24: Microbubbles as Ultrasound Contrast Agents at George Washington University
Last week, each student presented the results of their work to groups of their peers, fielding questions about their findings and their experience with the program.
