Research Opportunities for High School Students


Over the past several years, the Thamattoor lab has hosted a number of students from area high schools as summer research scholars. These opportunities are made possible thanks to funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The high school students typically spend a few weeks in lab working alongside Colby undergraduates and Das Thamattoor on original research projects in organic chemistry.


Last summer, Rachel Sirois and Ross Poulin (Winslow HS), Nick Cameron (Cony HS), Emma Wilkinson (Erskine Academy), Victor Klinkerch (Hebron Academy), and McKenzie Brunelle (Messalonskee HS) participated in the program.


If you are a high school student interested in this program for the summer of 2014, please download and complete this application form. The application deadline is Monday, April 28, 2014. You may also email Das Thamattoor for more information.
