Fruit Flies, Robots and Orange Peels

Last week our campus hosted a Science Experience Day for high school students and their parents. Gordon’s traditional visit model shook things up by incorporating labs and lectures focused on a spectrum of the sciences, including biology, green chemistry, robotics, kinesiology, mathematics, physics and engineering. Lab exercises included analyzing fruit flies, tree bark and celery, building robots, extracting oranges, metal melting, and a close up look at Dr. Keller’s specimens usually displayed through the Musuem of Natural History.
