Outreach: Spartan Girls in Engineering Summer Camp

In June, our group led an activity to teach 23 girls (6th-8th grade) about single crystals and crystal growth.  The students identified single crystal specimens using a hand-drawn booklet with hints.   We used a similar outreach activity last February during the Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day.  In this instance, we were  also able to take the girls into our lab, where they tried using a glove box and watched Mack grow pull single crystals from a pot of molten bismuth.
