High school science research students learned about careers in the field of science during Brookhaven National Lab’s Women in Science, High School Career Day on March 30.

During the event, the students participated in discussions with active researchers at Brookhaven National Lab, including Dr. Kristine Horvat, the Class of 2006 Hampton Bays High School valedictorian.

In addition to meeting with researchers, students took a tour of the Camp Upton lab.

“This was a unique experience where students were able to perceive some of the vast opportunities that could be available to them in the sciences after their educational journeys here in Hampton Bays,” said Dr. Stephanie Forsberg, science research teacher.
