Science Outreach Program
Through the Upper School Science Outreach Program, Country Day helps students find and secure summer internships in university laboratory settings.
Here’s a brief look at some of our students' impressive work:
Manu Amin ’15
Medicine, Appalachian State University
Manu examined the effects of a preterm labor preventative medicine on mice and had promising results.
Jonathan Vehaun ’15
Jonathan performed synthesis and classification of nine never before synthesized indium complexes. His work may be published in a major chemical journal.
Crystal Winston ’15
Engineering, East Carolina University
Crystal developed and tested robots for disaster situations to understand and evaluate the priorities of rescue.
Grant Steelman ’14
Physics-Material Science, Vanderbilt University
Grant worked with different mixtures of aluminum and vanadium oxide to develop materials that could be a faster, more efficient semiconductor than silicon for optoelectronics.
Akhil Singh ’14
Medicine, Piedmont Medical Center, Rock Hill, SC
Akhil researched a drug’s effects on leukemia, with his results published in Leukemia Research. He also researched predictive heart failure diagnostics on pacemakers in order to predict acute events of congestive heart failure.
