summer I participated in a summer research internship at
Brookhaven National Laboratory. I worked with a scientist in the Chemistry
Department who studies combustion reactions using laser spectroscopy. My
research involved computer analysis of the infrared spectrum of a related
molecule, CCBr. The internship was a very rewarding educational experience.
I learned about current scientific research, met students from all across
the country, and gained insight about vocational possibilities. It was so
much fun that I am returning this summer!" - Elizabeth Millings
