Last week, Kat and Jessica mentored two students, Kennedi and Ketura, for the Jim Holland Summer Science Research Program (SSRP)! This one-week program introduces high school students to scientific research by pairing them with a host lab in the Indiana University Department of Biology and giving them the opportunity to conduct an independent research project. Kennedi is a rising junior at the Hammond Academy of Science and Technology, and she investigated sex differences in seasonal aggression in male and female Siberian hamsters. Ketura is a rising junior at Bloomington High School South, and she examined the effects of birthing method on maternal care in Siberian hamsters. Way to go, ladies!
