The Chemistry department participatied in STAIRSTEP from 2009 to 2013.
The team in was is led by Dr. Christopher B. Martin.
STAIRSTEP students conducting research with Dr. Martin investigate the behavior of folic acid and the resulting products resulting from exposure to light. We perform both laboratory experiments as well as theoretical calculations.
STAIRSTEP students performing outreach with Dr. Martin help students to understand what types of topics are covered in a chemistry major in college and what jobs a degree in chemistry can offer. (Oh yeah... and all that cool chemistry demo stuff too...)
