Special Thanks – Module Creators: In an effort to continually broaden local students’ scientific experience we recruit graduate students to make scientifically themed modules. The graduate students’ efforts are completely voluntary yet provide the program with four hours of novel material on a weekly basis. These graduate students then volunteer their Friday evening to host the module and instruct local students:

  • Jackie Macgrath
  • Tyler Harvey
  • Anna Gladstone
  • Michaela Burke
  • Christian Gervasi
  • Richard Cramer
  • Matt Hartle
  • Hillary Henthorn
  • Loni Kringle
  • Ben Taber
    • Kara Nell
    • Lisa Eytel
    • Susan Cooper
    • Forrest Laskowski
