  • Emma Mueller ’20

    Emma Mueller ’20 was recently interviewed by St. Louis Review about her research of “The Effect of Ionizing Radiation on Volvox carteri!” She, as well as two other St. Joe students, presented high-level research at the Ocean Science Meeting in San Diego. Emma also recently joined three Angels at The Academy of Science’s St. Louis Science Fair-Honors Division.
     
    “Emma Mueller’s love for science and medicine raises awareness of issues affecting people in St. Louis. The senior at St. Joseph’s Academy recently was recognized as a finalist at a St. Louis science fair for her research on the effects of long-term, low-dose ionizing radiation.
     
    St. Joseph’s science teacher Katie Lodes said the intersection of faith and science comes naturally for students. “It’s a schoolwide culture that they’re always looking for the bigger picture and how they can make the profound impact in the world,” she said. “They’re looking for the greater good.”
     
    The school has been sending students to the honors science fair in St. Louis for the past six years, with some presenting at other conferences alongside science professionals, such as the American Geophysical Union conference in Washington, D.C., and Ocean Sciences Meeting, recently held in San Diego.”

    Emma Mueller ’20 was recently featured in a March 19th article by  Jennifer Brinker of the St. Louis Review about her research of “The Effect of Ionizing Radiation on Volvox carteri.”
