‘Take Our Kids to Work Day’ in Chemistry!

The Chemistry Department welcomed some young visitors today for 'Take Our Kids to Work' Day. This nationally recognized program provides secondary school students with the opportunity to spend a day in the workplace job shadowing their parents. Students are able to explore future career options and develop an understanding and appreciation for what their parents do at work.

Led by Tony Mittertreiner and Susan Vickers, these bright young (future university) students explored the Glass Shop, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, the X-ray Crystallography and Biological Services labs, Mass Spectrometry and the Shared Instrument Facility.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to make this possible!
