Chemistry and Biochemistry News

PKAL, or Project Kaleidoscope is a program sponsored by the Association of American Colleges and Universities designed to empower STEM faculty in order to grow the number of graduates in the STEM fields. This year's PKAL Regional Network conference was hosted by Stevenson's Fine School of the Sciences and several chemistry faculty members attended and presented at the one day conference held over spring break. The theme of the conference was Cultural Responsiveness in Fulfilling the Mission of Preparing a Global STEM Workforce. Dr. Dwyer and Dr. Burkett presented and Dr. Ward served as a panel moderator.

After graduating from SU with her BS in Chemistry in 2014, Harriet Adutwum was accepted to pharmacy school at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. She graduated with her Doctorate in Pharmacy in 2017 and is now working as a pharmacist at Rite Aid in Dayton, Ohio. Harriet reports, “It is a wonderful experience being a pharmacist. I love knowing that I am contributing to someone’s well-being.”

With the arrival of midterms, Stevenson's School of the Sciences is already planning for the summer! If you know some middle schoolers with a thing for science and math, then Stevenson is the place to be from June 25-29.  Campers work in our actual science labs with our actual professors. This is a day camp, with activities ranging from robotics to healthcare to environmental science. The last day has an extra fun activity like water rockets, scavenger hunts or making liquid nitrogen ice cream! For more information and to register, click here. 

Stevenson Summer Science Scholars Program (S3RP) held a "match" day to allow students who have applied to the S3RP to met all S3RP faculty mentors. The students and faculty paired up "speed dating" style to get to know one another and to ask questions about the research planned.  The students will choose the faculty members whom they would enjoy working with and the faculty members will rank the students that are most appropriate for their research projects.  Selections will be made based on mutual rankings. Up to three students will work with each faculty member for 10 full-time weeks this summer. Each S3RP student receives a stipend of $4000 for the summer.  Dr. William Harrell (bottom, left) and Dr. Tim Dwyer (top, right) were selected to be faculty mentors this summer in chemistry.
