USCB happenings

1 min read
USCB junior Kaiya Cain, a Biology major, completed a Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program at the Savannah River Ecological Laboratory this summer. In late October, she traveled to Alexandria, Virginia, to present a poster at the 2018 Council on Undergraduate Research Meeting. The poster was titled “Cs-137 whole body burdens and plasma biochemistry profiles of Nerodia floridana occupying a former nuclear cooling reservoir.” It was co-authored with Kyle Brown, David Haskins, Melissa Pilgrim, and Tracey Tuberville. Each facility can only nominate one student and only 10 percent of these students are selected to attend the symposium each year.
About 75 students from four local high schools spent Wednesday, Oct. 17, on USCB’s campus as part of the Teacher Cadet Program, a statewide initiative to encourage high school students with strong academic and interpersonal skills to consider teaching as a career. Teacher cadets take USCB’s EDCI 100 Observation and Analysis at their high schools as dual-enrolled students. Dr. Bruce Marlowe, chair of USCB’s Department of Education, says the department will conduct another campus day in the spring for teacher cadets in three more local high schools.
