High school intern wins state science fair

Some of NCSSM’s award winners at the 2016 North Carolina Science and Engineering Fair. From NCSSM http://www.ncssm.edu/news/2016/04/04/2016-regional-science-fair-winners

Congratulations to Kimberly Andreassen for winning the Biological Science division of the North Carolina Science and Engineering Fair with her project “The effects of climate change on evergreen bagworm development and immunity.” Andrea attends the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. She spent last summer working in our lab, mentored by Warren Sconiers, to determine how different temperatures affect bagworm development and immune response. Now Kimberly is off to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, AZ to present her research again. Good luck Kimberly! Congratulations to Kimberly and Warren for their great project.

About the Author:

Steve Frank
I am broadly interested in the ecology and management of arthropod pests. Herbivorous arthropods cause extraordinary damage to plants in agricultural, urban, and natural ecosystems. Understanding interactions between pests and their environment, plant hosts, and natural enemies can improve management practices and reduce pesticide applications.
