Student Interns’ Research Wins at Spring Research Festival and County Science Fair

At the annual Spring Research Festival on Fort Detrick, they placed first in the First-in-Development Cell Biology category. At the Frederick County Science and Engineering Fair, they won the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair Award of Excellence in Computer Science and placed second in the Molecular and Cell Biology category. 

Yet despite these accomplishments, Alexis Adkins and Jacqueline Chung said they didn’t consider themselves “real scientists.” Maybe that’s because they lacked a science degree—or, until very recently, even a high school diploma. However, they are indisputably real scientists.

30 Years Later, WHK Program Remains a Singular Opportunity

NCI at Frederick’s newest student interns smiled for a group photo outside the Advanced Technology Research Facility. Forty-eight young faces stared at the camera, looking excited but slightly overwhelmed. Later that same evening, the students took part in the Incoming Ceremony, the official start to what many in the past have considered one of the most meaningful journeys of their lives.

Thanks to Internships, Two Students Learn to Teach Others

A participant practices on a training dummy while Emme Tissue instructs

With the school year nearly over, classes are the last thing that many students want to think about—but not at NCI at Frederick and the Frederick National Laboratory. Here, Werner H. Kirsten (WHK) student interns Emme Tissue and Esteban Garcia aren’t just contemplating class, they’re teaching them. On May 23, now recognized as National Stop the Bleed Day, the two high school seniors led a Stop the Bleed training course for nearly a dozen employees at the Frederick National Laboratory’s Vaccine Pilot Plant.
