Materials Day Program

In collaboration with Sarah Castillo at the North Shore High School, we organized a materials program for junior and senior high school students from the North Shore High School. The students came to the University of Houston to do hands-on experiments and demonstrations related to various stypes of materials (polymers, crystals, and colloids). The students also had the opportunity to meet current undergraduate and graduate Chemical Engineering students to learn more about the University of Houston. In addition to our laboratory, other groups from the Chemical Engineering Department participated, including the Rimer, Conrad, and Stein Groups.
