Young scientist earns honors at area science fairs

Francesca Fabe, a senior at Beaumont High School in Cleveland Heights doing research in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve, has earned honors at two local science fairs for her work in investigating the fatigue behavior of stranded cables used in biomedical engineering applications.
 
This is Fabe’s second year working with Janet L. Gbur, a doctoral candidate in the lab of John J. Lewandowski, the Arthur P Armington Professor of Engineering II in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Her project, “The Effects of Fatigue on 35N LT 28Ag DFT,” earned a silver medal in health/medicine at the BEST Medicine: Bridging Engineering, Science & Technology Science Fair, and a silver medal in health/medicine along with a Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine Award at the Northeastern Ohio Science and Engineering Fair.
