High School Students Visit NU's Materials Science and Engineering Department (Nov. 2002)

HSTourOn November 25, 2002, about 70 students from an engineering class at Glenbrook South High School (Glenview, IL) and an Advanced Placement chemistry class at Evanston Township High School (Evanston, IL) visited the Materials Science and Engineering Department at Northwestern University.

During their visit, the students met with researchers in four labs: Scanning Probe Microscopy, Electron Microscopy, X-ray, and Mechanical Testing. The students observed thought-provoking demonstrations related to the researchers' work and had the opportunity to ask questions. The students' busy day concluded with a pizza party, hosted by the researchers.
