At the corner of Pauling and Nobel

As far as invitations go how could I possibly have passed this one up? Along with 7 other educators from across the United States, I was asked to participate in the Bio-Rad Explorers  Fellowship Program this summer. As a team we were trained  on many of the educational kits Bio-Rad offers and asked for our feedback on their implementation. We had the opportunity to work with the R&D team who probed us for feedback on their equipment as well. We all geeked out for a solid week having one-on-one conversations with their scientists, getting a private tour of the manufacturing and research labs, and being treated as professionals having ideas worthy  contribution to the scientific community. Thank you Bio-Rad for valuing quality science education for K-12 students.
