This annual poster competition for high school students, sponsored jointly by the American Chemical Society and St. Joseph’s College, took place on Saturday, February 4, 2012 on the Brooklyn Campus. There were 70 poster presentations and 77 participants in this year’s event, making it the most well attended competition to date. Students from 6 area highs schools attended and the quality of the research was also better than ever. All of the students received certificates and the winners received Barnes and Noble gift cards.
10 presentations were awarded honorable mention certificates.
Kone Moriamou, Ph.D., of the St. Joseph’s College Chemistry Department, presented the keynote address entitled Physicochemical and Structural Studies on Biological Macromolecules where she discussed her ongoing research at Brookhaven Nation Labs. In her talk she also shared her life experiences and how they lead to her career in science and research. She said that pursuing a dream is not always easy and she encouraged the students to pursue theirs. The students, many of whom, like Dr. Kone, were born in other countries, were inspired by her reflections.
We would like to acknowledge those who worked to make this event a success:
Chairperson: Jill K. Rehmann, Ph.D.
