EMS Upward Bound Math and Science team wins more than just first place | Penn State University
Six weeks of hard work paid off for Miguel Santana and Cintia Vasquez, two high school students who participated in the Upward Bound Math and Science Summer Residential Program through the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (EMS). They were awarded first place at the program’s awards ceremony, held July 2, at the Nittany Lion Inn on the University Park campus. But the students achieved much more than just an award, like learning how to conduct research in a lab and deliver a presentation to their peers.
