Science Students

Lincoln-Way East students receive research experience alongside top scientists at Argonne National Laboratory. This year, the following students are representing East in this program:

 Seniors- Aidan Dauber, Lauren Bates, Nabil Othman, Kellie Sucha, and Manuel Tsoukatos, Junior – Anila Moparthi, Sophmores – Max Bacon and Faris Yassin Through Argonne’s

 Exemplary Student Research Program, past teams conducted experiments using their particle accelerator called the Advanced Photon Source (APS) and the Center for Nanoscale Materials. This is the fifth year Lincoln-Way East has participated in the program. Previously, the Griffins tested catalytic converters, iron supplements, heavy metals in sunflowers and analyzed gold on the nanoscale. 

Each year their project has had a definite conclusion. Previous research and designs of both their poster and abstract prompted the students’ work to be displayed in the Learning Center at Argonne and on its education website.
