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.
