ORaCEL hosted about 60 elementary and high school students from local schools and presented several educational Demos. The students were educated on various topics including electrochemical detection methods, superconductivity, electrostatic forces, and energy generation from thermoelectric devices and fruits. Faculty, graduate and undergraduate students were actively involved in the educational outreach activities, which includes oral presentation on ORaCEL’s research activities, and select Demos. The outreach education is aimed at attracting young students and minorities to STEM education and research.
The departments of physics, chemistry and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering contributed to the outreach activities.
