All year long, WKYC will be spotlighting Girls in STEM, an initiative that inspires girls to embrace science, technology, engineering and math.

Alison Landry is our STEMbassador this week. She just graduated from Western Reserve Academy and will be studying engineering at Cornell.

But Alison has been spreading her STEM wings in other directions. While at Western Reserve Academy, she started a project to conduct breast cancer research. Mice were injected with breast cancer cells but wound up with gastric cancer.

You know Betsy Kling will have interest in a youngster already breaking ground in immunology, who wants to become an engineer, perhaps bio-med. See Betsy's interview with Alison in the player above.
