NUANCE: Nanoscale Characterization Experimental Center

RET/REU Farewell Party

On Friday July 28th, the summer RET and REU participants gathered, together with their mentors, for a farewell party. The group was treated to a demonstration in the fine techniques of how to make liquid nitrogen ice cream by Tirzah Abbott and Paul Smeets, NUANCE EPIC SEM and TEM Facility managers respectively. Everyone was then able to make their own tasty treat while also perusing the beautiful posters created by the RET educators offering a visual representation of all their hard work this summer!

It has been a pleasure to work alongside these students and educators this summer and we hope they are all able to take this experience and use the lessons in their classrooms for years to come.

Looking forward to seeing several of our RET participants next spring at the NSTA!
