While many people enjoy spending the summer at the beach or with friends, a group of seniors spent the summer working with mentors to conduct individual research projects in a laboratory.

On Dec. 18, the research students presented their findings to the underclassmen in the research program, friends, and family members. Research this year focused on: monitoring brain activity of smiles, studies on immunotherapies, and prevention of hacking gigantic computers.

At the conclusion of the night, the participating seniors received the “ultimate” senior research sweatshirts designed by Mrs. Schust and Mr. Schorn, the senior research instructors. The front of the personalized sweatshirts displays an array of words relating to CRISPR/Cas9, a unique technology that enables geneticists to edit the genome. The olive green sweaters mark the successful completion of their research projects and the conclusion of senior research.
