Chemistry Outreach Event with Visitors from Zhejiang University of Technology

Today undergraduate chemistry students from Zhejiang University of Technology visited the Engle Lab to do some experiments and see what life in a research lab is like.  Vincent and Zhen  helped conduct a urea polymerization, Rei and Tanner held a “weighing challenge” in the glovebox, and Mingyu and Jose ran the iodine clock experiment.  The students had a great time seeing what an international research lab is like and are looking forward to the rest of their trip to Las Vegas and LA.
