Megan Fieser from the Tolman group at UMN came and visited for the week to do high-throughput experiments through the CSP. We’ve really enjoyed having her this week! Come back for another round of experiments any time, Megan!
We participated in NYS 4-H’s Career Connections program by hosting a workshop for 8th and 9th graders on polymer chemistry, which included an experiment on recycling PLA cups by degrading them into a cleaning solution. A good time was had by all!
We had a great time having Dr. Steve Jacob from the Toste group at UC Berkeley and a fellow member of the CSP as part of the group for a week. He did high-throughput experiments on the robot and was a temporary member of 570 and the polyolefins crew.
