I am a high school student and in grade 9 and 10 I conducted research for my science fair project at a recognized university under the mentorship of a professor and his PhD student. I designed and carried out experiments in the university lab during this time as part of my research. I think this would be beneficial for me to mention on my applications to universities, especially my first choice university (which is not the university I conducted research at). However, I'm concerned that mentioning another university in my application to other universities may harm my application. I really do want to mention this though because it is relevant to the programs I'm applying to.
Do you think this could harm my application and is it worth mentioning? Is there a way to mention it without harming my application?
