1 Comment | Leave a Comment

A home-schooled high school student mentored by East Carolina University faculty is one of eight North Carolina students to compete in the International Science and Engineering Fair.

Alina Suedbeck will present her research on the pores of different caterpillar species at Intel ISEF, the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. The event is being held this week in Phoenix, Ariz. Suedbeck is the first from the state’s northeastern region to be accepted into the ISEF.

Her research began when she applied for the inaugural biodiversity scholarship from the ECU Center for Biodiversity, open to Pitt County high school students conducting research on local plant and animal diversity. Participating students were matched with faculty mentors to assist them in project planning.
