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, while 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 from different research labs or courses 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 in the labs at the Loyla Science Center
