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.

Dimethyl sulfide is a trace gas commonly produced by marine algae. Recent studies indicate that dimethyl sulfide plays an important role in cloud formation which, in turn, has potential to impact global climate. However, the burning of fossil fuels has polluted the air with excess CO2 which is absorbed by the ocean. This results in ocean acidification. This study will determine how ocean acidification will affect the overall production of dimethyl sulfide in relatively acidic waters.
