Trainees develop successful outreach component

Our IGERT Nanomedicine Trainees have developed a highly successful outreach component. The trainees continue to regularly showcase "Introduction to the Nanoworld" presentation series to local area middle and high school students, and teaching staff. The series consists of a nanomedicine related slide show and lab experiment that teaches audiences about Nanomedicine and its applications. "Introduction to the Nanoworld" continues to be perfected and has become a regular outreach activity that IGERT trainees can modify and cater to their audiences. The presentation was created by one of our IGERT trainees, Lara Jabr-Milane, and is now organized by current IGERT trainee, Brian Plouffe. Participants have included middle school students from the Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp, high school students in the Young Scholars Program, and K-12 teachers from the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) program.
