Information For: Alumni

Welcome WSSP Alumni!!

The WSSP started in 1993 and is still going strong!  Over the last 21 years we have expanded from 6 (?) high school teachers in the central New Jersey region to over 1300 students in more than 50 high schools across the nation, including Maryland, Texas, California, and Hawaii.  During this period we have changed the research project from the Great Apes, to the Mother of All Onions to our current project sequencing novel DNA fragments.  Look at our time line of project over the years. (Show time line?)

A list of past and present high schools who participated in the WSSP are shown below.  Check out if your school is still involved in the project!  We have included pictures of the students that we have collected over the years. (Link to high school pages)

We have also listed all the DNA sequences that have been published by each school over the years.  Please make sure yours are listed if you completed them and let us know if they are not posted.  (Link to DNA Sequence Pages)

Please take our Survey about your impressions of the WSSP! (link to survey)

We would really like to hear what you are now doing in college or in your career!    We are very interested in knowing if you continued your education and career in the sciences after participating in the WSSP.  We would also to know your impressions on how you think the program may have helped you and what we could do differently.  This information is very helpful to us and is extremely important in helping us obtain funding to continue the WSSP in the future.
