The University of Chicago Materials Research Science & Engineering Center (MRSEC)

November 1st, 2014 - October 31st, 2020 | PROJECT

The integration of research with education and outreach is an essential aspect of our Center's mission. In order to assure the most effective use of our expertise and resources, we have developed a multi-faceted approach with activities that focus on coherent themes that address our three primary audiences: research community, our neighborhood, and the general public. These activities include research internships, enrichment programs for students & teachers, and informal science opportunities.
