Fitting in a half day of outreach at McMeen Elementary School in Denver, Colorado, was a highlight for CNBP Research Fellow Lindsay Parker.
Spending time with a class of Year 5 students and their teacher, Lindsay led discussion about what scientists do, how research is conducted and answered a large number of science related queries.
Students were provided with the CNBP educational activity resource sheet and also given an overview of light based research currently being undertaken at the nanoscale.
“Spending time with kids and encouraging their interest in science and technology is a real buzz,” says Lindsay. “These kids were extremely inquisitive which is great.”
