Chemistry and Biochemistry News

Sydney Johnson (left) and Morgan McCluskey-Wirtz are both incoming chemistry majors who are excited to start at SU this fall. Sydney is interested in the BS/MS program in chemistry and forensic sciences and Morgan is looking forward to a career as a pharmacist. Both incoming students are staying active this summer: Morgan is playing in golf tournaments while Sydney is a lifeguard. We're happy to welcome Sydney and Morgan to the Chemistry Department!

Welcome to the new chemistry and biochemistry students who are joining us this fall! All new freshmen came to campus for a day in June to participate in activities to meet other incoming students, to hear about the upcoming school year, to meet faculty in the department, and to register for classes. 

Biochemistry junior Nicole Heil is excited to be participating in Stevenson's Summer Science Scholars Research Program (S3RP). Students are chosen for this special summer program based on their academic record and letters of recommendation from faculty. Nicole is working with Dr. Neal Miller who does research in astronomy. Nicole is taking data from galaxies that emit xrays and imaging the data to find intermediate black holes. Nicole has had a great experience this summer learning both about a new scientific field and about how research is done!

The School of the Sciences was excited to host its annual Summer Science Camp for middle school students.  Faculty and student helpers from the Chemistry Department participated in delivering exciting sessions on Biochemistry, Environmental Science, Forensic Science, Robotics and Astronomy.  A great time was had by all!

Chemistry major, Carli Castiglia, loved her first year at Stevenson. She enjoyed being able to meet many new people with very different backgrounds. She really enjoyed her freshman chemistry course.  “The best part was Mrs. Payne's friendliness and dedication to us as her students as well as the small size of the class that created a really close-knit group.”  For her end of year demonstration, Carli to color a picture using the properties of acids and based instead of a crayon or marker.
