freshman honors students

The achievements of efforts at the freshman level of chemistry was featured in the August Council of Undergraduate Research blog. Chemistry faculty member Dr. Jeremy Burkett has facilitated a year long research experience with first year honors chemistry students which has exposed them to the experience of real world mentored research early in their undergraduate career. The full story can be read here.

student at building

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. 

summer researchers

Our summer research program concluded with a day of research talks as our students presented their summer research projects to peers and Stevenson faculty and staff.  It was a wonderful day and summer for all of the S3RP research students and their faculty mentors.

research group

This summer, senior Chemistry major, Nathaniel Espey (second from right in back) is participating in an REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) at Virginia Commonwealth University. Here's an update directly from Nathaniel:

This summer I am working in the Lucas Laboratory for research in Bio-inorganic Chemistry.  I will be synthesizing and characterizing two complexes, [Ni(12-DOB)] and [Ni(13-DOB-Cl)], which are derivatives the amphoteric [Ni(13-DOB)] varying in ring size and electron withdrawing substituents.  My research is synthetically heavy, but aligns very well with what I have had success with in the past at the University.  I am finding research to be incredibly rewarding thus far, and plan to use this experience in making a graduate school decision somewhere in the field of Organic Chemistry.  What I have most enjoyed is the joint effort aspect of working in a research lab.  When I get a puzzling result, or have ideas about a procedure, I can always share them with my mentor, Ashley Forney, or other members of the lab to get more insight and more knowledge.  We are all working together toward the same goal and we all revel in each others successes!

Student in front of Smith Detection

This summer, chemistry senior, Joe Kittelberger, is completing his Capstone internship at Smiths Detection.  This company, located in Edgewood, MD, works on the application, management and manufacture of detection and screening technology. Currently, Joe is getting experience with analyzing the plasma gram data from an ion mobility spectrometer, an instrument that is used by TSA to detect trace amounts of explosives and narcotics at airports.  Once he's familiar with the instrument, Joe's project this summer is to look at false alarms that occur with the IONSCAN 600 in Narcotics Mode.   Joe is really enjoying his internship and is excited about all he is learning!
