Seniors in the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Biomedical Innovations class at Pattonville High School presented their independent scientific research to an audience of students, staff and parents on April 24.

Showcasing their work were Sarah Baker, Evan Clark, Caleb Hughes, Hannah Robinson, Maria Serra, Emily Ta and Tabitha Wilkerson.  

"These seven seniors have been working hard all year to develop, conduct, analyze and finally present their independent research projects,” said biomedical innovations teacher Jamie Jobe.

The showcase began with informal presentations. The students displayed posters featuring their research in the lobby of the high school auditorium, and student and staff observers had the chance to talk to the students about their research and ask questions. Students then gave formal presentations on their research in the high school auditorium.

The students and their research topics were as follows:
  • Sarah Baker, "Emergency Medical Preparedness;”
  • Evan Clark, “Does Informing People About Organ Donation Increase the Number of People Willing to Donate?”;
  • Caleb Hughes, “The Role of Race in Persons Exhibiting Allergic Reactions;”
  • Hannah Robinson, “A Dietary Survey of Pattonville’s Senior Class of 2018;”
  • Maria Serra, “The Relationship of Race and Asthma in Pattonville High School Seniors;”
  • Emily Ta, “Average Sleep versus Academic Performance;” and
  • Tabitha Wilkerson, “Pigs in a Blanket: A Decompositional Study.”
