Dr. Delwin Elder
University of Washington, Department of Chemistry
Almost everything that we interact with is made from molecules–from the air we breathe and the food we eat, to clothes, medicines, toys, and even everything inside of us. Come learn about some of these amazing molecules and the chemistry principles that give them different and unique properties and uses. You will get to build a famous molecule or invent your own!

Marshall Styczinski
University of Washington, Department of Physics
“Magnets – IN SPACE!”
Magnets have amazed us for thousands of years, and they have many wonderful properties. Find out how our spacecraft use magnets to peer beneath the surface of Jupiter’s icy moon, Europa.

Nick Montoni
University of Washington, Department of Chemistry
“What Color is Air?”
Using light, a prism, and a few jars of liquids, we will learn about some basic properties of light! We will also see how to relate material qualities, like thickness or density, to the color of the sky.

Nivii Kalavakonda
University of Washington, Department of Electrical Engineering
“Can Robots Help Doctors?”
Did you like the robot that sealed scars in Star Wars? Medical robots do not only exist in sci-fi movies and the distant future, they are already in healthcare! Come and learn about how robots are being used by doctors to save lives!
