Biochemistry junior Joseph Acqui recently presented his research on the effects of methamphetamine on various molecular and behavioral activities and the connections between methamphetamine consumption and addiction  at the 17th Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in Phoenix, Arizona The work leading up to the presentation was conducted at the National Institute on Drug Abuse, over the summer. Joseph also applied for and was awarded a DREAM (Diversity Resources for Enrichment, Access and Mentoring) Award, which paid for all of his expenses for his trip, lodging and expenses.

Chemistry and Science Faculty Lindsey Jones, Michelle Foss and Dawn Ward participated in the Ingenuity Project event that recently took place at the Brown Advisory building, where Dr. Ward served on a STEM careers panel. Stevenson is a sponsor of this program, which works to identify and provide advanced instruction for gifted students in grades 6-12 in the Baltimore City Public School system. The faculty attended the Innovators' Tea and had the opportunity to meet female students who are participating in the program at the high school level. There the students have the opportunity to network and make contacts with invited female professionals in STEM fields. 

The annual Chemistry Magic Show was held this week in the Manning Academic Center. The American Chemical Society Student Club presented cool science demonstrations for student in any major to experience awesome chemistry in action.

The club also participates in the Maryland STEM festival and will be having an encore performance of the ACS Magic Show for the pubic on Friday, November 10th at 2 pm. Later that day, another STEM festival event will be held at Stevenson: Mathstravaganza, November 10th at 3-5 pm. The event will include several interactive math exhibits and games which will be accessible to all ages and mathematical backgrounds. Some of the interactive exhibits include a giant Tower of Hanoi mathematical puzzle, the Chaos Game fractal generator, a station to create minimal surfaces with soap bubbles, a Prisoner's Dilemma simulation, and the Monty Hall Problem probability game.​ Please join us on the Main concourse in the Manning Academic Center on Owings Mills North. 

This is a typical scene in the office of Dr. Will Harrell, who teaches Organic Chemistry. Students gather for office hours to receive supplemental instruction and help with the subject. Dr. Harrell is so welcoming, and sincerely concerned with student progress, that students feel comfortable coming for help whenever it is needed. These types of interactions and relationships between faculty and students are what make Stevenson special.
