The student authors are all juniors during the 2014-2015 school year at Ridgefield High School. Three are involved in the school’s Science Research program, a three-year endeavor where students plan, organize, and conduct a major, independent science research project with a mentor whom they find themselves. The other two students are each conducting their own special science research and are involved in the Science Olympiad club at Ridgefield High School.
