Gomez Lab Science Outreach


Our laboratory has been actively engaged in educational outreach activities to local elementary schools. The lab students do this on their own accord, on a purely voluntary basis, and do not get credit for extracurricular service hours. 

Since science is a human endeavor, an important part of science is building relationships with others engaging them in the process, the passion, and the excitement of scientific discovery.


The activities typically include hands-on demonstrations and a lot of interaction with the elementary school students.  We also invite other Scranton students to join us.

We have also brought in students from Dr. Jong-Hyun Son's lab.

Our latest activity included a visit from the students at McNichols Plaza, where their students conducted hands-on scientific learning activities.
