A new program led by chemistry professor Marilyn Mackiewicz, this week-long workshop is designed to help students discover the wonders of deigning nanomaterials that can be used to solved global biomedical, environmental, and energy challenges. In addition, students gain skills in professional development, self-advocacy and identity, and career pathways for chemistry students.
Our Saturday Academies are not just on Saturdays! The program is designed to engage all motivated young people from grades 2 through 12, including those from underrepresented communities, in hands-on, in-depth learning by connecting them to community experts as educators and mentors. All pre-college students can interact with experts and experience professional environments in ways that help them develop intellectually and prepare them for rewarding careers.
