NUANCE: Nanoscale Characterization Experimental Center

Lenart Elementary Students Visit NUANCE

On Wednesday April 11th, students from the Lenart Elementary Regional Gifted Center came to Northwestern to visit the NUANCE facilities on campus. The 7th and 8th grade students enjoyed lunch in Pancoe Auditorium as a panel of scientists discussed why they decided to pursue a career in science and what they do in their respective professions. Later, the students were treated to a tour of the EPIC facilities in Cook Hall as NUANCE staff members explained how the center's instruments work. The students enjoyed the tour and hopefully they will return to Northwestern some time soon.
