The American Chemical Society-Greater Houston Section helps place disadvantaged students into academic, industrial, and medical laboratories for 8 weeks during the summer through Project SEED. They conduct research under the mentorship of accomplished scientists at university labs. Project SEED receives support from Shell Oil Company and the American Chemical Society. This summer four Harmony students participated in the summer internship, and experience college level chemistry courses. Upon completion they each received an educational award for their summer research work along with a $2,500 stipend. At the end of their internships students were asked to present to the community their research findings. “I was able to gain an invaluable perspective of the work of an actual researcher and the tasks that go into completing an expansive project. The knowledge that I have acquired will aid me in my future endeavors in the medical field”, said Harmony School of Ingenuity student Adesuwa E. Thanks to Harmony’s STEM teachers and leaders for finding such amazing work-based learning opportunities for our students.
