The March Break Open House hosted last Saturday, March 9th, was a tremendous success! Over 200 participants attended the MSE presentation sessions – the largest turnout in recent years! Our MSE booth showcased fascinating exhibits/specimens from different research groups, attracting high school students and parents. A tour of the state-of-the-art OCCAM electron microscopy lab drew in lots of attention from prospective students. Thank you to the professors for sharing their research specimens and to all the volunteers in making this event a huge success!
