Seven Waynesburg University students will serve at Laughlin Memorial Chapel in Wheeling, West Virginia, from Monday, May 7, to Friday, May 11.
Led by Evonne Baldauff, chairperson for the Chemistry and Forensic Science Department, students will work with teachers and students at a high school to perform chemistry demos, and then tutor at an after school program at the Chapel.
“It is great to share their passion for chemistry with others, particularly to help students gain an appreciation for and excitement of chemistry,” said Baldauff. “It is also a wonderful opportunity for them to learn how to present science to an audience.”
Students attending the trip include:
- Hope Bailey, sophomore forensic science major from Tarentum, Pennsylvania (Deer Lakes High School)
- Lauren Petrina, junior engineering chemistry major from North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania (Norwin High School)
- Brandi Sumey, freshman chemistry and secondary education major from Smithfield, Pennsylvania (Albert Gallatin Area Senior High School)
