Scientific Experiments demonstrating the Natural World 

During the spring of 2016, IGERT trainees Bianca Brown and Joaquin Nunez participated in outreach through SACNAS Educational Outreach Program: Brown Junior Researcher Program (BJRP) with the Boys & Girls Club of Providence. 

This outreach program helps students in Elementary school conduct basic scientific experiments with the goal of bringing science to the community and get elementary school children excited about the natural world. The experiments ranged from extracted DNA from a strawberry using household items; making ice-cream using liquid nitrogen to observing flies and other insects under the microscope and denoted features only observable under magnifying lenses.
