  • MSA Research students recently conducted a video conference with Dr. Yongli Zhang from Wayne State University.  Each of the students is working on a project involving microplastics, an area of specialty for Dr. Zhang.  They got to hear her recommendations, experiences, and ask questions during the meeting.  Plans were also put in place to collaborate on some sample collection and analysis with Dr. Zhang in the future as a way to solidify and confirm out techniques and results.

  • The MSA Mentorship Program got off to a great start this year.  On Halloween we had a wonderful breakfast and the students got to sit down with their mentor/mentee and get to know them, in addition to asking insightful questions for having a successful school year.

  • Congratulations to these students for being chosen from a national pool to be one of 14 teams to be given a grant from the Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams program for the 2019-20 school year!  They will receive $10,000 to build a prototype of their invention: an autonomous device capable of identifying and collecting small platics on beaches that are missed by current beach cleaning methods.  This is the third time a team from the WHS Math and Science Academy has been selected.  Quite impressive!
