📸 6 science and engineering students share pics of their summer

Science in photos

We asked Case Western Reserve University students to sum up their summer in one sentence and one photo.

See what these students in the sciences and engineering had to share.

Cindy Serena Ngompe Massado

Major: Chemistry
Minor: Social Justice

I worked on a research project functionalizing carbon nanotubes for asymmetric catalysis in the Swager group at MIT.

Juan Pablo Garcia

Major: Biomedical engineering
Minor: Mechanical design and engineering

Hayley Wagreich

Major: Materials science and engineering
Minor: Spanish

Together with an intern from another university, we worked with two CWRU professors to conduct fatigue and environmental research on biomedical materials. 

Ariadne Papamichou

Major: Mechanical and aerospace engineering

I did research in CWRU’s Materials for Opto/Electronics Research and Education (MORE) Center, designing and manufacturing a gold thin-film heater for high-efficiency cooling vehicle power electronics.

Jason Freedman

Major: Biochemistry
Minors: Public health, biology, chemistry

I was an EMT and field training officer at a Massachusetts company that provides emergency responses to municipalities and transport for hospitals.

Hope Hardman

Majors: Chemistry and mathematics    
Minor: Spanish

I worked as an intern at the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office with the Cuyahoga County Regional Forensic Science Laboratory fingerprinting the deceased for identification, developing fingerprints on different types of surfaces using various methods. I also completed a project with another intern that will become a published paper.

Ok, we let Hope have two sentences because… wow! 🤯 

Real experience in the sciences and engineering is what you can expect at CWRU, where 86% of students take part in research and creative endeavors.
