Nanodays


Our lab participates every year in NanoDays/MicroDays, a free science outreach event at Montana State University where elementary students and the public learn about nanoscale science and engineering with hands-on activities and demonstrations. Montana State University is a core member of the NSF-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Network (NISENet). About 300 people attend each year, and approximately 40 MSU faculty and students are trained as volunteers.

Expanding Your Horizons

Our lab also participates every year in Expanding Your Horizons, a one-day STEM workshop for middle school girls at Montana State University. Expanding Your Horizons is a national program designed to introduce young women to studies and careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The one-day program on the MSU-Bozeman campus attracts 250-300 middle school-aged girls each year. Students attend from throughout Montana, including many from Montana's American Indian Reservations.

Peaks and Potentials

The Chang Lab and Wilking Lab at Montana State University led a week-long summer camp called Peaks and Potentials for 5th-7th graders in the summer of 2015 integrating science and cooking. Peaks and Potentials is a summer enrichment camp offered on the MSU-Bozeman campus. The camp is designed to give high-ability/high-potential students entering grades 5-7 the opportunity to explore special topics of interest and work with experts in many subject areas.
