Adrian Morrison, a Paul Laurence Dunbar high school student, is carrying out experiments at the lab, under the mentorship of Tom Robl, Associate Director of the Environmental and Coal Technologies group. Adrian is part of the EBCE (Experience Based Career Education) program. According to the EBCE web site, "Academic internships through EBCE empower students to make informed career decisions. By using the expertise of business people and other community resources, students explore their career interests. They expand on the subject matter that is taught in the classroom through practical application on a job site. EBCE is a year-long course providing high school seniors with academic credit while they explore the real dimensions of many careers. As they master many of the skills they will need to succeed in the adult world of work, they also learn much about who they are and what they want to become." We are happy to have Adrian with us.
