First Science Fair of the Year Success for Outreach Group

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

January 25, 2012 was the first science fair of the spring semester for the physics outreach group. Physics graduate student Kristine Callan, undergraduates Lauren Musso (physics), Hunter Douglas (engineering), and Chad Liu (engineering) accompanied Derek Leadbetter to host Duke's physics demo tables at North Chatham Elementary's Science Night. The evening was a huge success, attended by hundreds of elementary school students. Our volunteer student team received many well deserved accolades. Upcoming science fairs scheduled for the spring semester include Githens Middle School, Creekside Elementary, NC Science Festival, and Duke Alumni Weekend. View more photos on Flickr here.
