Interdisciplinary Education Group

On this site, you can find a large collection of activities ranging from labs that can be done in the classroom to tabletop demonstrations suitable for informal education venues. Our group is the NSF-funded UW Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) Education and Outreach Group. We use examples of advanced materials and nanotechnology to enhance public understanding of fundamental science and engineering concepts and to share the excitement and potential of these interdisciplinary fields with K-12 audiences and the general public.
