Surfactant Research Tests

  Last summer of high school

Evaluating treatments for the BP oil spill

The project was run by a PhD student in an environmental engineering lab at NYU. I worked with the PhD student and two of his peers, two professors, and two other high school students.

My role

The professors and graduate students taught foundational skills of chemical and environmental engineering in a classroom each morning, then the other high school students worked in the lab in the afternoon.
