Charlotte junior is 3rd at national science fair

Emily Ashkin, a 15-year-old junior at Providence Day School, won a third-place award in the first national Popular Science Science Fair.

Her cancer research findings were titled “The Presence of Rb Protein in Metastatic Breast Cancer Cell Lines and Its Effects on Responsiveness to Doxorubicin.”

Emily’s findings earlier won her the Center for STEM Education Excellence in Research award and the senior first-place grand award in biological sciences at the Charlotte Regional Science and Engineering fair. She won first place in the cellular and molecular biology category at the Sigma Xi Scientific Research Society’s Student Research Showcase -- all without ever having taken a high school biology class.
