PROTECT hosts high school students, teacher

PROTECT PI and co-Director Akram Alshawabkeh hosted local high school students and a teacher as part of Northeastern Center for STEM Education’s summer programming.  The month-long program gives opportunities for hands-on research.  This year, Dr. Alshawabkeh hosted Rocco Cieri, a teacher from Medford High School, as part of the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) program, and  Diana Abbas, a student at Commonwealth School, and Michael Wagner, a student at Belmont High School, as part of the Young Scholars Program (YSP).  The three worked closely with PROTECT Project 5 trainees, particularly postdoc Lily Rajic.  Pictures from their time at Northeastern are below, as well as a video prepared by Rocco Cieri.
