Harrison High School Seniors Named Regeneron Science Talent Search Scholars
Harrison High School seniors, Lucia Lammers, and Stella Perini were named Regeneron Science Talent Search Scholars. They were selected from 2,162 applications received from 712 high schools across 46 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, and ten other countries. Scholars were chosen based on their exceptional research skills, commitment to academics, innovative thinking, and promise as scientists from 196 American and international high schools and homeschools in 36 states and China. Scholars were chosen based on their exceptional research skills, commitment to academics, innovative thinking, and promise as scientists.
Lammers (Colorimetric and Spectroscopic Analysis of Textiles Dyed with Local Invasive Plant Species and Waste-derived Mordants) and Perini (Protective Effects of Resveratrol Following Repetitive Head Injury in Wild Type and Amyloid β42 Drosophila melanogaster) conducted their research as part of Harrison High School’s Science Research Program. To be considered for the Regeneron competition, students conduct an original research project, collect and analyze comprehensive data, and present their work for evaluation by a panel of judges. Students also complete and submit an application that explains the reasoning behind their study, academic background, and interest in science.
The Regeneron Science Talent Search provides students a platform to present original research and celebrates the hard work and novel discoveries of young scientists who bring a fresh perspective to significant global challenges. The Science Talent Search rewards and celebrates the best and brightest young minds.
