Abstract / Description: 

- A Materials & Sciences related workshop for upper level highschoolers and undergraduate college students -

This workshop is an outreach program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), and provided free to participants at no cost.

This workshop will be completely remote on zoom (due to the pandemic), otherwise we would invite students in batches to come on campus and watch demonstrations and do some hands-on work in the lab.

The schedule as follows:
Day 1: Tuesday 6/29
10 AM PST - GTCA overview
11 AM PST - Molecular biology session

Day 2: Wednesday 6/30
10 AM PST - GTCA experiments
11 AM PST - Electrophysiology characterization

Day 3: Thursday 7/1
10 AM PST - Verification experiments
11 AM PST - Fun quiz, free discussion time with Dr. Zhenan Bao

Each session is expected to be 30-45 mins (includes Q&A session). For each day, we will take a break in between the two sessions with the remaining time.

This workshop outreach program is intended for highschool and undergraduate college level students. The goal of this workshop is to provide exposure to laboratory techniques and research settings (remotely), foster new innovative science ideas and interest in the materials and sciences field and beyond! Please note you are not expected to know anything prior to this workshop but if you want, this is the journal article that we will be following closely (

Feel free to brief over it for your interest. If it is too overwhelming, no worries as we will go over some of these concepts in the workshop. FYI, there are no dumb questions and we will be happy to answer any questions at the end of each session.
