Westhampton Beach High School freshman Chelsea Aguirre has been accepted into Brookhaven National Laboratory's prestigious STEM Prep Summer Institute. With the acceptance, she will take part in the three-week program over the summer.

To earn the spot in the program, Aguirre was required to submit two teacher recommendations, a resume and an essay, as well as undergo an interview process.

“This is a great opportunity for Chelsea and we are very excited and proud to be sending her to this program,” said Alison Bufalo, Aguirre’s living environment teacher.

Of the opportunity, Aguirre said she is looking forward to meeting new friends and learning new things. She is particularly interested in geology and biology.

When not exploring science, Aguirre can be found participating in her school’s art club and drawing. She is also vice president of the GSA club at her school.
