The Drexel Materials Research Society chapter is hosting a series of science workshops for high school students (8-12th grade) in the Philadelphia area. This program, called “Science Saturdays,” will take place on May 10th and 24th. The goal of the project is to encourage high school students interested in science to come each week and learn about different topics. Events will be from 8:30am – 11am. Several lectures given by grad students in the Materials department and will be interspersed with interactive demos. A short intermission will feature a quizzo event for prizes, and towards the end, the students will have a chance to ask questions.
