Members of Riverhead High School’s Women in Science and Engineering program, which links high school students with graduate and faculty mentors from Stony Brook University to enhance STEM studies, celebrated their cumulative accomplishments at the university’s annual WISE Capstone Event on April 30.

During the event, the students showcased their individual and group science research projects, which drew the attention of well-respected doctors, faculty and students from SBU.   

This year, WISE participants explored various topics in health and information technology. Their research was conducted after school through classroom sessions at Stony Brook Southampton. Topics included occupational therapy, speech therapy, holistic healthcare, forensic science, data analysis, information technology and library sciences.
