Four of Walker's Guided Scientific Research students have been invited to present their research at UGA at the Georgia Junior Science and Humanities Symposium February 25-27.
Only 50 students from the state of Georgia are invited make these oral presentations each year.
Congratulations to the following students!
Zoey Brown - "The impact of school-based mindfulness meditation on stress and depression among adolescents."
Karl Lee - "Application of convolutional neural network on detecting texting while driving behavior"
Lauren Martin - "Evaluation of current wastewater treatment methods in kaolinite slurries from Georgia"
Landi White - "Influence of acne treatments on the facial microbiome"
Landi White and Zoey Brown are part of Walker's Public Health Concentration, and spent a month last summer working at the CDC; Karl Lee is part of the Walker Engineering Concentration and spent a month last summer working at Georgia Tech; John Richardson served as a mentor for Lauren's project.
Karl and Lauren were both named one of 12 state finalists; for the second year in a row, Walker was the only school to have two students named finalists!
