Who Are We?
Our names are Zoë Cappella Cooper and Modupe Oridota. We are New York City high school students. Zoë will be a senior at the Bronx High School of Science and Modupe is a rising junior at Medgar Evers College Preparatory School . This summer we have been working in Dr. Silverman’s lab on this research project. We are part of the ARISE (Applied Research Innovations in Science and Engineering) program at NYU. Through this program we interviewed and were then matched with a lab. Both of us are interested in environmental engineering, which is why we have spent the summer in Dr. Silverman’s laboratory working on this particular research project.
