Students Shine While Presenting at the 11th Annual Upper School Science Symposium

2024 Science Symposium

At the 11th Annual Science Symposium, a group of talented and ambitious Upper School students recently gathered to share some of the science research work they conducted last summer.

Chloe Saxonhouse ’25 kicked off the evening by talking about her experience at the Columbia University SHAPE Program designing a mini medic solution for heart and health monitoring in children. Angelina Quan ’24 shared her experience enhancing Ethereum’s crypto security with LUMEN, novel zero-knowledge algorithms that she did under the mentorship of UNC Charlotte professor Yongge Wang. Finally, Price Davis ’24 presented his work at UNC Charlotte aiming to synthesize and document a new fluorinated hydrocarbon cage. After each presentation, there was a short question-and-answer session during which students fielded complex questions about their studies and processes.

In addition to the presentations, five students had poster sessions highlighting research from their summer experiences:

  • Lula Porter Barber ’25 – Congress of Future Medical Leaders, Boston, MA
  • Aaryan Chopra ‘ 24 – Coordinated Research, UNC Wilmington
  • States Cooke ’26 – Summer Immersion: Neuroscience Institute, Wake Forest University
  • Lily Giardi ’25 – Medicine and Healthcare, Summer Scholars, American University
  • Iminkah Iyapo ’26 – Students Stepping into STEM NAACP, Rutgers University
