Shyderica Young from Wood’s Mill High School in Gainesville was one of 26 students selected by the Georgia Appalachian Center for Higher Education to attend the Appalachian Regional Commission/Oak Ridge National Laboratory 2014 High School Summer Math-Science-Technology Institute.

Young will attend with her science teacher, Sheryl Williams.

The two-week residential program provides hands-on learning focusing on the application of mathematical, scientific and technological principles in the world of work. The ARC/ORNL Institute is a unique opportunity for students and teachers to work with research scientists on relevant math and scientific topics facing the world in the 21st century. Students and teachers work in teams on research projects, with each team comprising three to six students or teachers. The team approach provides an opportunity to conduct research activities and solve problems in a group setting.
