Science Faculty Introduce Local Children to the Wonders of Science

Lots of “oohs” and “ahhs” and a couple shrieks were heard in the Taylor Science Center during spring break when two groups of local third-grade students visited for some hands-on science learning with the help of Hamilton’s science faculty. For more than 20 years, Professor of Biology Dave Gapp has organized “Science Exploration Days” which bring classes of elementary school students to Hamilton for guided tours and short lessons in various areas of science.  More ...

Catherine Oglevee ’15 Work at Mass General Leads to Published Paper

Many of us have experienced a technological glitch, whether the TV isn’t responding to the remote, or the dishwasher is starting on its own. While such glitches are typically an inconvenience, when the machine has the potential to detect life-threatening medical conditions, the stakes are higher. During her time at Mass General Hospital (MGH) this summer, Catherine Oglevee ’15, a chemistry and mathematics double major, discovered first hand that no matter how advanced a machine may be, none are immune to malfunctions.  More ...
