HIGH SCHOOL OUTREACH WITH STEM FELLOWSHIP

May 13, 2021

We are excited to have held the group’s first outreach activity virtually via Zoom. We introduced students in grades 10-12 to Artificial Photosynthesis and electrocatalysis through a short lecture, lab tour, two lab demonstrations, and

a Q&A session. Thanks to Sasha, Kaeden, Rida, and Jiayao for running the show!
