MindScope Editor-in-Chief Kristen Doucette ’19 shares her passion for science.
Every semester, a volunteer team of student writers, editors, and designers pulls together to publish MindScope: Simmons Science Magazine. The venture began three years ago with a vison for encouraging students to pursue their passion for science outside the classroom.
Editor-in-Chief Kristen Doucette ’19, a chemistry major, joined MindScope her first year at Simmons.
“Starting out, there was only a handful of writers and a few executive board members. The organization has continued to grow each semester, with participation from students across multiple scientific and communications disciplines and classes,” says Doucette.

MindScope, founded by its first editor-in-chief, Leila Bellou ’16, focuses on a different area of science in each issue. This spring, it’s the health sciences with articles on the potential for a universal flu vaccine, the ways medical advances are revolutionizing health-care options, and other topics. Two alumnae reflect on their careers, and a current student explains what inspired her to pursue a nursing degree.
