On Friday afternoon, June 24th, the Summer 2022 Draelos Science Scholars program kicked off at the JSNN with a White Coat Ceremony. Drs. Michael and Zoe Draelos, who have provided the funding for the program since its inception in 2016, bestowed on each high school student participant a white laboratory coat embroidered with the scholar’s name, much like students who begin Medical School do. The ceremony marks the beginning of the six-week internship program taking place between June 27th and August 5th, with ten JSNN faculty members hosting a total of 13 students, who will contribute to ongoing research projects in materials science, chemistry, biology, and related fields. Four additional students will work with faculty from UNCG’s Chemistry and Psychology Departments.
