The Department of Energy has selected 365 students for its High School Honors Science Program this summer. They come from the 50 states, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the District of Columbia and from Canada, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Italy, Japan and Mexico. Each student will spend two weeks at a DOE research laboratory.
In the Earth sciences, students going to the Pacific Northwest Laboratory in Richland, Wash., will study desert, forest, river, stream and ocean ecosystems. At Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, students will do environmental field work. At Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, N.Y., students will use the National Synchrotron Light Source for research in biology, chemistry and physics (see “Synchrotron X Ray Sources in the Earth Sciences,” by S. R. Sutton et al., Eos, 69, 1666, 1988).
