From discovering fossils in Nevada to studying minerals from Mars, MHC students were incredibly productive. Funding through The Lynk helped 55 percent more students take advantage of summer learning opportunities.
- On geological dig, first time's the charm for firstie: On a lark, Rose Minichiello ’16 decided to join a professor on a dig in Nevada. What she found pushed back the known fossil record by 170 million years.
- Measuring human impact through river's ebb, flow: At her internship with the Nature Conservancy in Northampton, history major Kripa Harper ’16 is studying how humans have altered the Connecticut River and its shoreline.
- For cutting-edge research, students use elbow grease: Students conducting research with astronomy professor Darby Dyar are crushing minerals collected from across the globe to learn how light may reflect off other planets' surfaces.
- Computer students build robots from scratch: The goal is huge: to have robots work as a team. Audrey St. John’s research assistants are taking baby steps toward that goal by building robots this summer.
