CIERA Research Students and Judges Featured at Northwestern University High School Project Showcase

On June 2, the Office of STEM Education Partnerships (OSEP) in partnership with the Office of Undergraduate Research and the Motorola Solutions Foundation, hosted the 7th Annual High School Project Showcase as part of Northwestern University’s Undergraduate Research and Arts Exposition. The exposition featured 9th-12th grade students who were selected for their high quality projects. For the event’s judges,  Reach for the Stars Director Michelle Paulsen organized and trained graduate students including Sam Hadden, Bernard Beckerman, Aaron Oppenheimer, Madison Fitzpatrick, Jovanca Smith and Jia Wu. Two of CIERA Postdoctoral Fellow Daryl Haggard’s high school students, Talia Weiss and Taylor Sims, were awarded as outstanding project participants for their project, based on research pursued at CIERA. Talia and Taylor are both students at Evanston Township High School and will be attending MIT next fall.
