Karen brings her ECH 161C undergraduate biochemical engineering class to tour the facilities at Bayer CropScience.
The group presented two talks (Mary and Matt) and two posters (Sara and Korn). A special congratulations to Matt for winning “audience favorite” talk!
Matt organized a grad student-led outreach event called “STEM Stars” at Shirley Rominger Intermediate School in Winters. The kids were taught about scientific thinking and the complexity of exploring Mars through hands-on problem-based learning.
Sacramento City College members of the hand-powered centrifuge team, led by the McDonald-Nandi lab, visit Davis for a lab/campus tour and learn information the undergraduate biochemical engineering program.
A warm welcome our new Chemical Engineering graduate student lab members: Dexter Antonio (Phd), Kevin Yates (Phd), Eric Knapp (MS), and Kiro Kelada (MS).
