Break through. Boundaries. Limitations. Health and sickness. Life and death. Even space. It all begins in a lab at Savannah State University.
Dr. Karla-Sue Marriott is a chemist and the director of Savannah State’s Forensic Science program. Under her guidance, it’s grown from a minor to a very major major—with mock crime scenes for learning labs, fingerprint identification tech, and a whole lot of chances for hands-on experience.
A chemist at heart, Dr. Marriott has never met an opportunity she didn’t want to seize. So when she heard that NASA was looking for a talented team of chemists to fuel its next generation of space exploration and experimentation, she—and her students—went for it.
Juniors Shakema Bowman and Daniel Meis joined her in pursuit of the NASA grant and a chance to send research to the International Space Station.
