Antaya Science and Technology Student Research Assistants Contribute to Create a Better World by Bringing Superconductivity to Real World Technology
A select group of students from Winnacunnet High School in Hampton NH and Traip Academy in Kittery ME are revved up for learning at Antaya Science and Technology, one of the world’s most advanced centers of research and development. This program has been made possible though the company’s foundation-The Antaya Foundation for Science and Technology.
Under the mentorship of Dr Timothy Antaya, high school students interested in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) are contributing as research assistants to ongoing research projects for existing work contracts. The work contracts are with both major private corporations and public entities including the National Cancer Institute. In the process students are learning valuable technical and analytical skills, as well as gaining insight into the scientific process.
The foundation recognizes the importance of development and greater investment in education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education fields.
A key element of better STEM preparation–involving students directly in research–has been implemented in the student research assistant program at the Antaya Foundation. Students gain real-world experience, build their resume, put classroom learning to work, and begin to navigate their STEM career paths.
