During her years at Marblay High School, Samantha Livermore excelled in biology and chemistry, but when she took advanced classification physics, a spark flashed through her. “I found the room very heavy and I had something to worry about,” said Livermore. I was always a little puzzled to find out and I really liked that.
She realized for a long time that she was a “fan of Dr.” and that from an early age she was fascinated by everything related to space, trying to figure out how the universe came into being. Her curiosity and interest in science led her to Tuff University, where she was one of the top five, first-degree physics majors in 2021.
In a private college with an estimated 6,000 elementary students, Livermore had access to challenging subjects such as Intro to Computation and Quantum Computing, a challenging, theoretical course and intermediate astrophysics, which covered basic topics. This field.
After the first two years of multidisciplinary laboratories, physics majors shifted their focus to higher and higher mathematics. “Certainly it was not easy and there were many other classes that took everything I had in the physics department and the professor and it was easier and more fun,” said Livermore.
Research is an integral part of any major in physics, and Livermore had the opportunity to stay in its second year of study on the campus, researching critical issues in a huge gap in the consultant Roger Tobin Laboratory. “It was a wonderful experience and I am very grateful to that professor because our work focused on teaching physics in the laboratory,” said Livermore.
In the summer after her teenage years, she was admitted to the Stanford Linear Emergency Center in Palo Alto, California, for a bachelor’s degree in science. Livermore enjoyed working with high-density laser technology, but Covid thwarted those plans.
Her work experience became a distance experience and she was given a high-energy astrophysics project in which she studied the brightest and most powerful gamma-ray blasts in the universe.
Livermore has extended its research into the Gazette-Ray, focusing on a major physics topic, but instead recommends it for students looking to pursue postgraduate studies in the field.
Faculty and staff at the Tufts Physics Department do a great job of incorporating elementary education into the program, and Livermore is paid for introductory courses and classroom assignments for teaching young students. She also served as a teaching assistant at a mechanics course where she was involved in experimental design, and she found it fun and exciting.
This young, outgoing scientist, grandfather, chemist, and father-in-law have a creative side. Livermore has a great love for music and has performed with the Capsla group Tuff SS! For four years. Pre-Covided, the singer’s group practiced seven hours a week and traveled around and out of Massachusetts for the weekend. While many of her close friends sang alongside her, Livermore said, “That team really told me about my time in Tufs.”
Some experiences of the week as a teenager prepared the lesson for Livermore’s future. She asked for money from the physics department of the conference she wanted to attend. With that in mind, they suggested that she attend the Feast of Physics in Yale University. That age-old experience changed everything. Inspired by the graduating students and teachers she met there, Livermore decided it was the right choice for her. She will start working on her PhD in the fall. At the University of Chicago in Physics.
“I’m definitely excited and a little scared because six years is a big commitment,” said Livermore. She is very interested in soft matter physics and quantum science, which are very different subjects. After earning her PhD, her ideal career path. It will take a few years to work in the industry and then pursue an academic career.
Four years ago, Livermore recalled that he could not choose Tuft, a private institution with a lower price tag, or enroll in a more affordable school where he was accepted, but he was not happy to attend.
That’s why she won a four-year scholarship from the Marblehead Dollars Scholarship and Tufs Nubair Scholarship. The combination of these two scholarship opportunities has given me the opportunity to go to Tufs and give the best elementary experience I can, and I am very happy to do so.
For his part, Livermore said it was encouraging that the city where she began her studies and physics was helping cover her college degree expenses over the past four years.
Citing Marbleed as a thriving city, she believes that it is a powerful practice for city dwellers to make a significant contribution to the lives of young people. With the help of donations, “people have the power to make a difference in the way high school students go to college,” says Livermore.
Many college students are grateful for their graduation without high debt. This is one reason why Livermore is going to graduate school.
Marbleldor Dollars believes that the charitable spirit of President Karen Pierce is safe in the city, as locals have been meaningfully supporting the non-profit organization for thirty-four years. “We are fortunate to be living in a city where we are dedicated to everything,” says Pierce. “We are pleased to support Samantha and all of our scholarship recipients and wish them all the best as they begin their careers after college.
