NEW ROCHELLE, NY — Six Ursuline seniors in our Science Research course competed at the Westchester-Rockland Science and Humanities Symposium on February 3, 2018.
WR-JSHS is designed to challenge and engage students (Grades 9-12) in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. At this symposium, more than 400 students took part, from Westchester and Rockland Counties.
Congratulations to Katie Mulligan who placed 5th for her study in the field of Behavioral Science.
In Ursuline’s Science Research program, students are taught how to conduct electronic searches of literature; collect, organize, and analyze data; give classroom presentations of research; and eventually, under a scientist mentor, do original research. This is a 3-year independent research program. It is a unique research opportunity for the student and requires a time commitment above and beyond the ordinary school schedule.
We are proud of each of our student scientists:
Kristie Arlotta- Environmental Science
Prisha Sujin Kumar – Cell and Molecular Biology
Sarah Ahn- Cell and Molecular Biology
Elisabeth Olsen- Psychology
Emma Gordon- Neuroscience
Kaitlin Mulligan- Behavior
