Community Outreach

Each summer members of the Howard Lab participate in an outreach program for middle school students.  Lab members serve as mentors for the five-week program that involves  hands-on laboratory work and culminates in a science fair.    Some highlights include a "Science of Celebration" unit and projects on the "Chemistry of Fun".

Tyrique Arthur '24 works with SFK students on exploring the properties of water absorbing polymers.

Abigail Wong-Rolle '19  helps a middle school student set up an experiment to extract apple juice using pectinase.

Reham Mahgoub '20 works with students to test properties of polymer packing peanuts.
