Over the summer, teachers from Connecticut high schools joined labs at UConn to learn about tthe different research activities that go on in Engineering. Joe, a Hartford high school teacher, joined our lab to conduct experiments with the help of Perry. Take a look at this video from the School of Engineering, which shows some of the fellows and their experiences.

Juanpa is a NSF GK-12 Fellow and works alongside with 10 other fellows to enrich the learning experience of technical high school students through fun and interesting engineering projects. Currently, is working with some students on building dye sensitized solar cells with different procedures. Additionally, he and his colleague Paiyz are working with the students on the design of a moon buggy for a NASA competition.
