Physics and Astronomy Summer Fellows
Materials science is the study of the properties of matter and its applications in optics, chemistry, physics, and civil, electrical, chemical, and mechanical engineering. The broad field of materials science and the complex ideas that can be included in it are typically introduced into formal education at the college level, but recently there has been a push for younger students to also have exposure to materials science. In this project, we used the techniques demonstrated in First Physics to expose students, ages 915, to materials science. Our hypothesis was that by using these techniques, higher level concepts can be broken ...

Understanding The American Subaltern: An Exploration Of Complex Literary Characters Through SocioCultural Lenses, Sophie Gioffre
Understanding The American Subaltern: An Exploration Of Complex Literary Characters Through SocioCultural Lenses, Sophie Gioffre
English Summer Fellows
This project involves the analysis of three novels — Stephen Crane’s Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, Ann Petry’s The Street, and Toni Morrison’s Sula — featuring main characters who are forced to navigate realistic socioeconomic environments rooted in racist, sexist, and classist systems of oppression in the United States of America. Through the process of completing closereadings of the novels, conducting extensive secondary research on historical contexts, and examining other scholarly criticisms and interpretations of these novels, I develop new insights into the main characters’ plights. To transfer this conceptual understanding into a more personal and empathetic one ...
Yeast: The Gateway To Redefining And Improving Biology Labs, Connor Loomis
Yeast: The Gateway To Redefining And Improving Biology Labs, Connor Loomis
Biology Summer Fellows
Building off of collegiate research performed during the summer of 2018, this lesson plan outlines a lab for secondary students using yeast. Yeast is an affordable and convenient organism to introduce to secondary education, and students can learn a lot about biology through it. Essentially, the goal of the lab is for students to explore the effects of certain substances on the growth of yeast. While content is emphasized, this lesson plan also looks to build students’ understanding of science in general as well as proper laboratory skills and technique. In addition, it pushes students in their thinking as they ...

The Definite Integrals Of Cauchy And Riemann, Dave Ruch
The Definite Integrals Of Cauchy And Riemann, Dave Ruch
Analysis
Rigorous attempts to define the definite integral began in earnest in the early 1800's. One of the pioneers in this development was A. L. Cauchy (17891857). In this project, students will read from his 1823 study of the definite integral for continuous functions . Then students will read from Bernard Riemann's 1854 paper, in which he developed a more general concept of the definite integral that could be applied to functions with infinite discontinuities.
