Brophy Students Publish 2023 Science Journal of Brophy

Thanks to the many dedicated and talented students at Brophy who are interested in writing, publishing and other journalism-related endeavors, the school has several award-winning student publications, including The Roundup, Brophy Literary and Arts Magazine (BLAM) and The Wrangler. In 2018, a group of student scientists and researchers organized to create the Science Journal of Brophy, based on professional scientific publications. This spring, the sixth edition of the SJB was published under the direction of moderator and science teacher, Mr. Mike Welty '83.

A few of this year's articles in the 48-page magazine include "What Are the Factors and Comorbidities That Affect Children and Adolescents to Develop Severe Kidney Disease," "Plasticon: An Analysis of Microplastics as Fine Aggregate Replacement in Traditional Concrete," "Neural Networks and Self-Driving Cars," "Making Ourselves More Scientifically Literate" and others. The student authors present their research and cite their sources, offering a similar reading experience to professional journals.

This year's staff includes editor-in-chief Amar Toric '23, head layout editor Bobby Munhall '23, director of events Cooper Pitts '23 and online editor William Johnson '23. Article contributors include Shawn Biltis '23, Nico Cevallos '23, Nathaniel Chavez '24, Vir Dolasa-Sahani '26, Doer He '24, Hudson Iannacone '23, William Johnson '23, Bremer Kaprosy '25, Shaan Keole '24, Carson Lauer '23, Cort Ostendorf '23, Cooper Pitts '23, Owen Reed '23, Sami Shammas '26, Brennan Wiscombe '26 and Nico Wood '24.
