Field Trips

We're committed to sharing our discoveries with budding scientists, and encourage opportunities for students to join us during a lab field trip.

Students learn first hand about evolutionary materials research with a presentation and interact with scientists during tours of CEM labs.  Field trip schedules created to suit individual class needs in the area of bioinspired materials research. One possibility is a tour of the gecko lab and polymer labs to learn about the research to create Geckskin (TM).
