Every year we participate in a range of outreach programs to encourage more female and/or underrepresented
students to the STEM fields. In below we show some of our outreach activities in the last two years.

1. Florida Young Scholar Program:

The Young Scholars Program (YSP) is a six-week residential science and mathematics summer program
for Florida high school students with significant potential for careers in the fields of science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics. Our laboratory hosted two high school students (Sara Barker and
Channing Gaufillet) from Young Scholar Program in summer 2017. During this time, they had plenty of hands-on experience with a range of non-Newtonian fluids, and learned a great deal about the application
of complex fluids in our daily life.

2. Family STEM night: To align our outreach activities with the K-12 education, the PI and his group have organized (and are going to!) multiple sessions that involve hands-on experiments for students in local Tallahassee area. 3. Laboratory Visits: We regularly host middle and/or high school students from local schools in our lab to show them some interesting aspects of non-Newtonian fluids. Students get familiar with wonders of non-Newtonian fluids and how these systems are different from Newtonian counterparts through experiments.
