Archer’s annual STEM Symposium is an opportunity for Los Angeles high school students who have completed independent or small group projects in STEM to present their findings. Students are invited to present their research in the fields of molecular biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.

The Archer RISE Award honors exceptional young women for their innovative scientific research or engineering design projects that further existing knowledge or develop solutions to pressing scientific challenges. Finalists for the RISE Award are noted in throughout the online program and will be awarded at lunch on May 21.

Bacteria -- a more sensitive dissolved oxygen readout?

In this study, dissolved oxygen removal techniques were tested and evaluated in preparation for establishing growth curves of E. coli HB101 under variously anoxic conditions in order to construct a bacterial oxygen sensor. In theory, the sensor would be used to test the water-splitting capabilities of metal oxide spots quantitatively, in conjunction with the Solar Energy Activity Lab kit.
