Katelyn SweenyKatelyn Sweeney, Natick High School, 2013 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams Grant Awardee

Katelyn Sweeney, Natick High School InvenTeam leader and incoming member of MIT's Class of 2018, will represent her team and the InvenTeam initiative at ASEE. The InvenTeam's project to develop a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that functions on ice for local search and rescue dive teams was highly technical and complex. Ms. Sweeney was instrumental initially with organizing the team and writing the final application for an InvenTeam grant. Her technical skills along with her project management, communications, and leadership skills are exemplary. In addition to these skills, Katelyn brought to the team an understanding and empathy for the first responders who would benefit from the ROV making ice rescues less risky and potentially more successful. Katelyn continued with the development of the InvenTeam’s project during her senior year at Natick High School by meeting with technical rescue representatives with the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy, field-testing the ROV, and working with intellectual property lawyers to file for patent protection of the useful and unique ROV. Besides academics, InvenTeams, and theater, she spends time outside of school as a mentor and role model for young female students encouraging them to get involved with robotics and to help others through invention.

 

Gerald MeixiongGerald Meixiong, Lakeside High School, Lakeside, GA 2014 winner of the Siemens Foundation Competition

Being from a family deeply involved with scientific research, Gerald developed a passion for science when he was very young. With this interest, he joined the Science Olympiad and Science Bowl teams in high school. Gerald has been competitively swimming since the age of 5 and plays the Alto Saxophone. He volunteers at a local hospital and aid nurses in helping cancer patients.

Gerald conducted research for his project for over two years at the Georgia Regents University in his hometown. His research focuses on mitosis, the process by which cells divide. He sought to elucidate the mechanism by which pulling forces on chromosomes, or DNA, are generated. These forces ensure every cell maintains a copy of the parent DNA. Using a variety of different lab techniques such as microscopy and cell culture, he discovered a novel mechanism for efficient chromosome segregation. He found new functions of proteins which affected the amount of force generated on chromosomes, thus affecting the speed of cell division. This alteration of division speed could possibly be applied to therapeutic drugs for cancers or healing.

Katelyn SweenyKatelyn Sweeney, Natick High School, 2013 Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams Grant Awardee

Katelyn Sweeney, Natick High School InvenTeam leader and incoming member of MIT's Class of 2018, will represent her team and the InvenTeam initiative at ASEE. The InvenTeam's project to develop a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) that functions on ice for local search and rescue dive teams was highly technical and complex. Ms. Sweeney was instrumental initially with organizing the team and writing the final application for an InvenTeam grant. Her technical skills along with her project management, communications, and leadership skills are exemplary. In addition to these skills, Katelyn brought to the team an understanding and empathy for the first responders who would benefit from the ROV making ice rescues less risky and potentially more successful. Katelyn continued with the development of the InvenTeam’s project during her senior year at Natick High School by meeting with technical rescue representatives with the Massachusetts Firefighting Academy, field-testing the ROV, and working with intellectual property lawyers to file for patent protection of the useful and unique ROV. Besides academics, InvenTeams, and theater, she spends time outside of school as a mentor and role model for young female students encouraging them to get involved with robotics and to help others through invention.

 

Gerald MeixiongGerald Meixiong, Lakeside High School, Lakeside, GA 2014 winner of the Siemens Foundation Competition

Being from a family deeply involved with scientific research, Gerald developed a passion for science when he was very young. With this interest, he joined the Science Olympiad and Science Bowl teams in high school. Gerald has been competitively swimming since the age of 5 and plays the Alto Saxophone. He volunteers at a local hospital and aid nurses in helping cancer patients.

Gerald conducted research for his project for over two years at the Georgia Regents University in his hometown. His research focuses on mitosis, the process by which cells divide. He sought to elucidate the mechanism by which pulling forces on chromosomes, or DNA, are generated. These forces ensure every cell maintains a copy of the parent DNA. Using a variety of different lab techniques such as microscopy and cell culture, he discovered a novel mechanism for efficient chromosome segregation. He found new functions of proteins which affected the amount of force generated on chromosomes, thus affecting the speed of cell division. This alteration of division speed could possibly be applied to therapeutic drugs for cancers or healing.
