It was a pleasure to have Hala Algallaf, a Saudi high school student, who spent her six-weeks research internship in our lab. Her internship was supported by the Saudi Research Science Institute (SRSI) program. During her stay, Hala was introduced to the electrochemical synthesis of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) working under the guidance of Dr Rifan Hardian. Hala investigated the effects of various reaction parameters, such as applied voltage and reaction time on the quality of the synthesized MOFs. During this relatively short time, Hala did an amazing job, and gained hands-on practical experience both in the lab and through science communication. She successfully presented her results in front of the KAUST faculty panel, and we are proud of her achievement to get the Top Presenter Award. Well done, Hala!
