Regina K. Herrick

Collaborating with the University of Southern Maine (USM), Mrs. Herrick and Ms. Saunders create “wet lab” research units to increase students’ scientific understanding and literacy skills. After researching the topics, students work with USM graduate fellows to design and implement community-relevant experiments in medical research/biotechnology, water toxicology, or fuel cell technology. Students lead conferences to present findings to the community and participate in a USM symposium on student research, scholarship, and creativity.
