Facility Management

Wentworth students often find that their initial tenures with a co-op employer turn into much longer stays. For Kiara Torres, BFPM ’17, a one-semester co-op with global law firm Ropes & Gray turned into a full year of experience.

Torres completed her first co-op with the firm between January and April of 2016. She then stayed on part-time from May through August before accepting another co-op with the firm for the fall semester.

The Department of Sciences hosted its Summer Showcase in August 2016.

The following work was presented by Wentworth students:

The Impact of Circadian Mutation of Intestinal Flora

  • Katie Vilardi
  • Supervised by Ryan Rogers, Ph.D.

Rotation Curves in Alternative Gravitational Theories

  • Taylor Saintable and Justin Harrington
  • Supervised by James O’Brien, Ph.D.

Impact of Rdl on Circadian Rhythym and Locomotion in Drosophila melanogaster
