Adriana Rogers, a former Placer High student, alongside two other Lewis & Clark students, has been selected to participate in the Voting Rights Data Institute this summer. The Institute is a highly competitive program, accepting only 35 students across the nation to collaborate on mathematical solutions to partisan gerrymandering. The program takes place over six weeks in June and July, and employs professionals from Tufts University, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.).

Rogers will use various mathematical practices to analyze past political trends in districts across the country, identifying biases and ultimately proposing a solution to partisan gerrymandering for the 2020 federal redistricting.
