Tuesday, November 28, 2023

As part of the Research Science curriculum at the Academy, senior Daniel Yoo and junior Jackson Bales are conducting original research to be presented next semester at local and/or state research conferences. Under supervision of Dr. Olufowote, Director of Academic Affairs, Daniel’s research, “School type and perceptions of well-being among South Korean Students,” investigates the impact of conventional or vocational secondary education in South Korea on student mental health, while Jackson’s study under the supervision of Dr. Donald Winslow, Assistant Teaching Professor of Life Sciences, investigates how factors such as temperature, time of day, weather, the presence of people/animals affect the presence of chipmunks and their efficiency in collecting food to store for the winter.
