Polymer Day Outreach Event

Reineke group members Haley, Jeff, Anatolii, Yaming, and Leon participated in the annual Polymer Day – You Make It, You Break It! outreach event for high school juniors and seniors in the Exploring Careers in Science & Engineering, organized by the College of Science & Engineering K-12 Outreach.

Polymer Day volunteers demonstrated synthesis of polymers, characterization of their molecular and structural properties, and processing them into plastic parts. High school students learned about a variety of engineering, physical science, and mathematics major offered in the College of Science and Engineering through demonstrations, hands-on activities, lab tours, lectures, and discussions with students, faculty, and staff.
