Have you ever wondered what a research lab looks like and what the scientists and engineers do inside a research laboratory?
Come join the virtual lab tour event! We will have 8 scientists provide a tour of their lab (possibly prerecorded), describing their experimental setup and how they control it and take data. The demonstrations will be followed by an interactive Q/A session. Everyone is welcome!
*The Virtual Lab Tour access link will be posted shortly.
