Continuing Lauren's description, "Sara Vliet, My (Crystal) Hua, Corey Griffith, and I all served as consultants. Corey Griffith, Nicole Williams, Stefani Andrews and I also ran a hands-on chromatography exhibit demonstrating how chromatography can be used to identify water contaminants. Many students (and parents!) dropped by their booth and had a lot of fun separating out food dye "contaminants" from our "contaminated water" (i.e., pureed spinach plus food dye). A few of the students told me after visiting that the activity was "really cool" and wanted to do something similar for their own science fair projects. Overall, the day was a great success thanks to the efforts of our student planning committee: Stefani Andrews, Corey Griffith, Samuel Hinman, My Hua, Marcus Pennington, Nicole Williams, Sara Vliet, and myself."
Our appreciation to these students for their outreach efforts. Below are pictures of the event provided by Lauren.
