Another outstanding WACO High student, Lennon McClanahan will be participating in Summer Research in the Physics Department at Coe College this summer. He will spend eight weeks on campus assisting in research developing particle detector technologies for medical and particle physics, as well as homeland security.
Students model proteins from X-Ray diffraction data and perform data analysis. He will also work with a professor that focuses on the ionic conductibility of various types of glass. The development of a new generation of fuel cells based on ionically conductive glasses is the main application of this research.
Coe selects only one high school student each year to participate in this research experience. Lennon attended a Talented and Gifted Camp at Coe in the summer of 2019 and studied Materials Science. It was through his connection with those professors that he was eligible for this research experience.
Lennon will be a senior at WACO High School next fall and is the son of Chad and Robin McClanahan of Crawfordsville. Congratulations, Lennon!
