As the 2018-2019 school year comes to an end, many clubs and other after school activities look to find memorable ways to put a close to their time together. Between the We the People team’s trip to Washington, D.C. and FCIAC playoffs for spring sports, Trumbull High students are certain that they are creating unforgettable experiences. On May 17, 2019, one after school club, Dr. Goodman’s Science Academy, spent their final meeting touring Dr. Robert Langer’s laboratories at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and meeting with researchers there.

Science Academy is an after school biotechnology enrichment for freshmen students with a strong passion for STEM, particularly the biomedical fields. After spending their year learning skills such as DNA electrophoresis and genetic engineering, the seven Science Academy students took their science skills to the next level by exploring scientific research at the collegiate level.

The interest in women’s athletics has been on the rise for years. However, despite this expansion, there is a large wage gap in men and women’s sports. This wage gap contradicts the message about equality that the media has been portraying while trying to empower young female athletes, as it make them feel less valued than men.

According to Adelphi University’s Master of Science in Sport Management program, “The top female soccer players earn $177,831 less, or only 14.4% of what the men earn. This comes despite America’s women outshining the men on the field.”

These statistics convey that women are not viewed as equal in sports, despite their effort and competitiveness. The women’s soccer team is actually the most successful team in the world, compared to the men who are only ranked 25th. Recently, the women’s team filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission about this issue.
