Outreach Activities

Department Seminars offered by C4 faculty

We welcome the opportunity to visit your department (sponsored by C4) to give a seminar on C4 research and to meet with students to discuss educational opportunities within C4. Our goal is to develop long-term relationships with faculty mentors who are educating and training undergraduate students interested in pursuing a graduate degree (PhD or MS) in chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. Abstracts of seminars offered by C4 faculty are given below. Please submit your request for a C4 faculty seminar to C4@brown.edu. Scroll down to bottom of this page for additional hyperlinks to C4 outreach partners (The Leadership Alliance, Brown Science Center Outreach, Yale Science Outreach, Yale Science Saturdays, Boston Museum of Science).
