GCHS Student Completes Prestigious STEM and Robotics Programs

Glen Cove High School Honors Student and National Honor Society member Blake Woods recently completed the competitive MythOlympics science technology and engineering summer program sponsored by ALCOA, which he attended at Clarkson University. MythOlympics is a competitive scholarship based program open to high achieving students interested in pursuing academic careers in STEM (science technology engineering and math) fields.
Blake received a full scholarship covering the cost of his attendance and a $4,000 scholarship, should he decide to attend Clarkson University. Blake also completed a one-week Robotics program while at Clarkson University where the team he led won top honors. Blake rounded out his summer at Clarkson by working as a high school research intern in the Clarkson University Laboratory for Biochemistry and Proteomics and participated in Clarkson's undergraduate summer research conference (SURE) where he presented a poster of his work on biochemical investigation of chicken eggs.
Blake presented his research on the protein content of brown versus white eggs at the Clarkson undergraduate summer research conference (SURE), as one of the few high school students presenting.
