Science Ambassadors is an opportunity for undergraduate researchers in the Skrablab to return to their former or local high schools to discuss their research, discuss life as a science major at IU, and introduce topics such as solar energy science or nanoscience to the students.

Colorful demonstration are typically incorporated. Enthusiastic participants are wanted! Please contact Professor Skrabalak for more information. Provide your resume and list of science classes completed.
