At the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, Nobel laureate Jerome Karle (foreground, right) and National Medal of Science winner Isabella Karle (foreground, left) explain the unique features of a toxin from a poison dart frog to high school students in the Laboratory's Community Summer Science Program. The program brought 31 Long Island high school students who are talented in science and mathematics to Brookhaven Lab for six weeks during the summer to learn science first-hand from Laboratory researchers, through lectures and supervised internships. Louise Hanson (third from right) manages the program and is the daughter of the Karles, chemists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, who each presented a scientific seminar as part of the student program. Students (from left) Jeremy Drysdale, Shoreham-Wading River High School; David Kwartowitz, Elmont Memorial High School; and Dara Anne Coleman, Academy of Saint Joseph's in Brentwood, gained some insights from the distinguished scientists.
