Cheng Chin, a 2005 graduate of Forest Hill High School in New York, worked on the CVD diamond project with Chih-Shiue Yan. Cheng will be attending Columbia University in the fall.

Jacob Cohen, a high school student at the Yeshiva of Greater Washington, looked for superconductivity in compressed sodium with Viktor Struzhkin.

Betsy Littlefield (Carnegie Summer Intern), from Colby College, worked on hydrous phases in the mantle with Steven Jacobsen.

Lisandra Rosario (Carnegie Summer Intern), from Universidad Metropolitana (Puerto Rico), worked on iron-bearing solid solutions with Stephen Gramsch.
