STEM1MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (10/12/12) - The Muhlenberg County High School STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Academy held its second STEM Induction Ceremony in the Felix Martin Hall on September 27, 2012.
 
Over 100 guests attended the ceremony, where nearly twenty new freshman candidates, as well as additional inductees in the sophomore, junior and senior grade levels were added to STEM academy.
 
This year, senior STEMites provided the attendees with both a poster session of proposed research, held in the lobby of the Felix Martin Hall, along with oral presentations within the auditorium. Research and engineering projects included “Current Physiological and Psychological Effects of Pets on Residents in Long-Term Facilities” by Skyler Steele; “Effects of Proline Accumulation in Fast Plants Due to X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Irradiation” by Dylan Stewart; “Examining the Types of Cells That Drive Regeneration in Salamanders” by Nicholas Lile; The Physiological Effect of Music on Physical Activity” by Darcy Sullivan; “An Examination of Fish Populations in Luzerne Lake, Located in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky” by Anne-Taylor Sparks; “Gym Theft Deterrent System” by Liz Axtell, Nick Carver, Dylan Simmons, and Evan Whitmer and “Hands Free Dog Walking” by Michale Engle. Project design, implementation, data collection and analysis will continue through April.

In March, senior STEM students will present their findings at the Kentucky Junior Academy of Science. STEMites will need to submit their research findings under standard scientific research paper protocol, and in addition, students will present oral presentations to other junior academy students, along with other Kentucky college professors, state researchers, and university graduate students.
