The innovation engine for new materials

"Ask A Scientist" Videos

In this project, K-12 students interview UCSB scientists about their career, their interest in science or their specific research experiences. The scientists answer the questions on camera, adding a more personal face to the interaction.
Our first project was done with 5th grade students from Monroe Elementary School in Santa Barbara.
