At Amherst Regional Middle School (ARMS), science teachers Ms. Welborn and Dr. Mayfield host Soundbytes Cafe during lunch for 7th and 8th graders, during which graduate students from UMass come to the school and present their research. On Friday, April 12, the Soundbytes topic was Energy, Equality and Justice. The guest speaker, Destenie Nock from UMass Amherst, does computer modeling to determine the most effective and efficient power generation and distribution in areas where not everyone currently has access to electricity. The students thoroughly enjoyed her engaging presentation on this important topic.
