Seton Catholic 8th Graders Tour BU Science Labs
4/19/2013 (Updated 10:45:27 PM)Seton Catholic 8th graders got the opportunity to see first hand how students in the science majors at bu spend their day in the labs.
The junior high schoolers toured the geology, neuroscience and chemistry labs Friday morning.
It was part of Research Days at Binghamton University. It's a week long program where undergraduate and graduate students highlight their research and expose students to the work they do to get them interested in the sciences.
"This is when (the teens) start developing a sense of things going on in the world around them. We hope to cultivate that interest and show them the things that you can get into and they excitement and fun you can have," said BU Chemistry PhD student Robert Congdon.
The graduate students performed experiments like how warm air rises over cold air, and the difference in density between oxygen and nitrogen.
