Today, we had a special guest at assembly. Dr. Alison Criss, who is a microbiologist and Assistant Professor of Microbiology at UVA, came to speak with the school about science as a career and how she became interested in microbiology. She was recently honored with the 2011 ICAAC Young Investigator Award, of which only five are awarded worldwide! After her talk, the eleven 7th and 8th grade students were awarded their lab coats. They will wear them as they begin research on their upcoming science fair projects. More about their chosen projects can be heard in the video below.
