Lab-Based Curriculum for Entry Level High-School Science Students
Presenter Names: Zephaniah Greenwell and Mike Schutz
Science courses with a laboratory component are a requirement for High School graduation in some states and for admittance to many state universities. With COVID-19 restrictions, students were unable to attend in-person labs, and area high-school teachers were tasked with adapting their science curriculum for students learning at-home. Limited resources were provided to facilitate this change and students have been placed at risk of completing High School without hands-on scientific experience. By partnering with the local teachers, a lab-based curriculum business is being developed for entry-level science students that could be performed in-person or by student studying at home.
Performing Twitter Sentiment Analysis to Better Understand Responses to social issues

I focus my attention in social issues because are controversial and create polarization, which at the end, provide a good test ground for this type of analysis. My objective is to categorize and quantify the amount of positive and negative words in tweets using the hashtags #DerekeChauvintrial, #GeorgeFloyd and #GeorgeFloydtrial to identify whether the sample of tweets collected fall under positive sentiment or a negative sentiment.
