Science Outreach 2013

Our undergraduate lab instructors led a lab for young students in the Frank Hobbs Out of School Care program. We hope to see these students taking our courses in a few years!

Lochside Elementary School students

In November 2011, Val Kerr (Lab Instructor), Barb Currie (Lab Instructor), Alyssa Herkel (Lab Assistant), Valerie Taylor (Lab Assistant), Rebecca Vincent (fourth year student), Lisa McEwen (fourth year student) and Jenny Khakh (fourth year student) went to Lochside Elementary School to give the Grade 2 students a hands-on science experience. The children cycled through six stations where they performed experiments that focused on properties of solids, liquids and gases. They had fun using pipettors, microfuge tubes, graduated cylinders, stir plates, vortex mixers and balances; we had fun watching their curiosity and excitement of science blossom.
