Olivia Apicella, senior chemistry major, completed her capstone internship by working as a Teaching Assistant for Fast-Paced High School Chemistry with Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth. She worked at the satellite location in Carlisle, Pennsylvania at Dickinson College where she had the opportunity to work with gifted and talented middle and high school students from all around the world. Her main responsibilities were preparing for laboratory activities, managing the classroom, and assisting with student comprehension. She was even able to teach several topics while instilling a passion for science to her students. ​She is pictured here in front of the Rector Science Complex on the Dickinson College campus.

For her capstone experience, Senior Biochemistry major, Rachel Grewette, was selected to participate in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Michigan State University. Under the guidance of several graduate students and professors, she performed experiments in organic synthesis and cell culture. Here's how she described her summer:  "It was a great experience overall!  Since I had the opportunity to work with different people in the lab, I've been learning a lot. Everyone in the lab is great and always willing to go out of their way to help and teach me new things. The program also holds weekly seminars for students thinking about going to graduate school, which have been very helpful to me throughout the program."  Rachel is shown here presenting her research at the 2019 Mid-Michigan Symposium for Undergraduate Research Experiences.
