Francis Scott Key High School junior Meredith Tate had lots of questions for McDaniel College chemistry majors Eli Williams and Jake Holechek during a question-and-answer session on "What high school students need to know about college life as a science major" Thursday morning.
The Q&A was made possible by McDaniel's Nora Roberts Foundation Faculty Award for Community Engagement. The High School Outreach Program for the Sciences session was organized by Dana Ferraris, a visiting assistant professor of chemistry at McDaniel, and Stephen Robertson, an adjunct lecturer in chemistry.
"I feel more confident," Tate said after the Q&A session. "I've had my mind set on pre-med since I was a child. This helped me feel motivated and encourages me to work hard to succeed throughout my chemistry classes."
Alison Stull, who teaches Advanced Placement Chemistry at FSK, described the session as "fantastic" for her students.
