Mason welcomes Loundon County High School Researchers
On Friday April 8, 2016, the College of Science and STEM Accelerator were proud to welcome high school students from Loudon County Public Schools (LCPS). These students are all dual-enrolled in COS 120: Introduction to research, which exposes students to the practice of scholarly inquiry. Students may use lab study, computer modeling and analysis, mathematics, or other original methods as appropriate. The year-long Independent Science Research projects culminated in these public presentations of research posters in the atrium of Exploratory. From biology, chemistry, to engineering, and math, many of these 125 projects were also featured at the Regional Science and Engineering Fair. This marks the second year, the STEM Accelerator has partnered with LCPS to encourage scholarly research projects for high school seniors.
