Outreach

An important element of our mission is to work with students (from elementary school through college) and community partners to ignite interest in science. In the above example, scientists and graduate students from the Medicinal Chemistry Collaborative and the UNCG Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry pose after leading one of their Science Night events at Lindley Elementary School, a public school in Guilford County.  This annual event is collaboratively organized by students and parent volunteers. At the event, K-5th graders and their families perform fun and safe experiments with “real-life scientists”.
