Senior Named 2021 Rising Scientist

Congratulations to Zoe P. ‘22 who is one of only 5 students across the United States to be named a 2021 Rising Scientist by the Child Mind Institute! Selected from 53 outstanding finalists, Zoe was recognized for her work in our Science Research and Design program (SRD) where she has been studying the impact of personality on coping response to COVID-19. She becomes the first BC student ever to win this prestigious award and will receive a $2000 college scholarship.

"Zoe's work on measuring COVID-19's effect on teen coping strategies is timely and provides essential knowledge that can help us better understand how young people process trauma. Her work exemplifies that student researchers are capable of creating knowledge and serving as agents of scientific progress and change," says Dr. Danny Gentile who oversees our SRD program.
