A team of juniors from Chesapeake Science Point has taken the First Place Grand Award in the 53rd annual Anne Arundel County Regional Science and Engineering Expo.
The team of Saja Mahdi and Rafee Mirza claimed the First Place Award at the Expo with their project “Biospectroscopy: The Future of Breast Cancer Detection.” Their project involved developing different breast cancer cell lines and analyzing them in a Ramen Spectrometer. The subsequent data was placed in a machine learning program to determine if the computer could accurately group the cells and determine if breast cancer was present. This research may lead to lower cost and faster test results when screening for breast cancer.
