Educational Outreach

Our group has been active in educational outreach for local high school students.

Since 2008, our lab has accepted 12 local high school students and let them participate in our research during summers. Under our guidance, they took part in our experiments and data analysis. It is our pleasure to see motivated high school students do well in the summer research despite their lack of experience. In fact, two of the high school students even obtained a co-authorship of our publications. Our university will likely allow us to resume the outreach activity in Summer 2023. High school students in the Houston/Galveston area who are strongly interested in participating in our research are encouraged to contact Prof. Iwahara by March 10th for information on how to apply for the summer research opportunity.
