Volunteers in Science and Technology

Ishita Chatterjee, Sanjana Kumar, Sadhana Lolla, Preethi Prakash and Megha Tummalapalli

Ms. Ishita Chatterjee, Ms. Sanjana Kumar, Ms. Sadhana Lolla, Ms. Preethi Prakash and Ms. Megha Tummalapalli serve as student coaches for the Hallie Wells Middle School Science Olympiad teams. While they did not attend Hallie Wells, they wanted to give back to the community they lived in and reached out to the principal. For the past four years, they have conducted weekly after-school meetings to prepare, organize, mentor and coach students to compete in the Maryland Science Olympiad.

These women have had a tremendous impact on the students they have worked with over the past four years, as well as future students in the Clarksburg area. They have shown that females can be successful in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)-related fields and encouraged many of the female participants to enroll in STEM courses in middle school and high school.
