State Sen. Catharine Young and U.S. Rep. Tom Reed presented state and federal certificates Friday, July 31, to area high school students for completing a two-week STEM Summer Research Program at St. Bonaventure University the last two weeks of July. Pictured are (front row, from left): Dr. Xiao-Ning Zhang, associate professor of biology at SBU and coordinator of the program; Darienne Slocum (Portville); Abigail Schwartz (Olean); Paige Dugan (Allegany-Limestone); Christian Morales (Portville); and Zane Porterfield (Allegany-Limestone). Back row (from left): Claire Fischer (Allegany-Limestone); Nick Jodush (Olean); Sen. Young; Rep. Reed; and William Seip (Allegany-Limestone). The students conducted research in freshwater ecology, biology, chemistry, molecular biology and microbiology with faculty members from St. Bonaventure.
Twenty-five students will be invited to participate in a unique four-year program focused on five traditional STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) disciplines. Thanks to a grant of almost $600,000 from the prestigious National Science Foundation, these fall 2015 freshmen will journey through their time at St. Bonaventure University housed in a learning community and taking several core-area courses together. Features include travel to academic conferences, unique Discovery Within Community programming, and enhanced mentoring, tutoring, and career guidance to aid achievement.
