NMC Participates in the Los Alamos ScienceFest

 

The New Mexico Consortium took part in the 2018 Los Alamos ScienceFest on Saturday July 14, 2018 with a booth displaying information on who we are and displays of several posters highlighting some exciting research going on at the NMC! 

This year was Los Alamos' 11th ScienceFest which was developed to celebrate the history and science of Los Alamos through fun and engaging activities for people of all ages.

Besides information, the NMC booth also had a hands-on activity for anyone interested. After trying to guess the number of algae cells in the flask, participants then could prepare a sample and use an Automated Cell Counter to figure out the answer. Several young potential scientists really enjoyed the pipetting!

Many people stopped by to talk to Steve Buelow, the NMC Chief Executive Officer, Shannan Schnedler, Chief Communication Officer, and Carrie Talus, Science Outreach and Communications. Overall, the day was a great success participating in this fun community event.
