4-H Career Explorations

The MMD lab hosted a University U workshop as part of the annual 4-H Career Explorations program on Cornell’s campus. Six groups of rising 8th and 9th graders from around NY State rotated through our 80 minute session “Breaking Bonds and Changing Colors: A Mechanical Engineering Take on Chemistry”. Students acted out different types of bonds and conducted their own tensile tests. Although not depicted here, everyone in the lab rotated through running the sessions. Thanks to Alexa Maille and the rest of the 4-H team for a very helpful training workshop and making all the organizational aspects run seamlessly.
