MRH Student Presents Research Findings in DC
Natalie Mitten went to Washington DC to present at the National Junior Science Engineering and Humanities Symposium.
JSHS is designed to challenge and engage students (Grades 9-12) in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits and networking are planned.
Mitten traveled to Washington DC to present her academic paper on how traditional gender beliefs impact depression in adolescence. She presented her findings to a panel of judges from the Symposium. Mitten’s paper reached the highest levels of academia.
“There is not many other schools that have a science and research based class such as ours that allows its students to pick their own topic or project and research such an in-depth paper, let alone travel to another city to present it. It was definitely a learning experience and I would like to thank Mrs. Dwyer for guiding me along the way,” says Natalie Mitten, senior.
