Three Saint Paul College students were selected to attend the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technical Education Conference from October 26-28, 2022. Courtney O'Kane, Lucy Landwehr, and Tony Yang completed research projects in the spring of 2022 as part of the Science and Engineering Technology A.S. program and will present their research. Courtney worked with the University of Minnesota's Nanocenter testing nanoparticles on HeLa cells, and Tony and Lucy worked with Plocher's Vinyards to investigate grape leaves' resistance to Japanese beetles.
All three students were supported by an NSF grant that provides stipends for their research. Students were supported by our Science Scholars Program, which provides up to $8,000 per year of scholarship support (depending on credit load) and co-curricular support.
I am thrilled and honored to travel to D.C. The conference will open doors to future connections and opportunities, and it will build my confidence in the field as a new scientist.
