MEM-C Summer Visitors Are Here!

MEM-C is lucky to be hosting a large group of visiting researchers at UW Seattle this summer!

Last week, our group of MEM-C REU students, UCF PREM visiting student, and UH PREM visiting students arrived for their 9 week summer research experiences. There are 17 total undergrads in this summer’s group, and they are already off to a busy start with orienting to their host research groups and journal clubs. This week they are all attending the ACS Colloid and Surface Science Symposium which is being hosted here at UW Seattle.

Prof. Remi Beaulac from Swarthmore College arrived earlier this month. Remi is joining us as a MEM-C Visiting Scholar and is conducting research with the Gamelin Group. He is familiar with the group and this area since he did his postdoctoral work here at UW!

This week our Research Experience for Teachers (RET) participant arrived to campus. Our RET is a K-12 teacher from Honolulu and will be very busy these next 3 weeks with our Education Director Andrea Carroll as they work together on a project focused on integrating of Hawai’ian culture and community into the contexts for the outreach activities so that, in partnership with the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, NanoCamp can be extended to the local youth community in and around Honolulu.

Next week, we are getting ready to host our two-week NanoCamp here in Seattle in partnership with UW Youth and Teen Programs. And we’ll be joined by a high school intern from our UH PREM partners who will be working on a project to get teens more excited about nanoscience.
