Science for Everyone

We always enjoy giving tours of our lab and explaining the science behind the mess of cables and mirrors. We have worked with middle school summer camps, as well as with many other student groups. ZLab members have volunteered their time teaching courses to school-aged students, giving public talks, and judging science fair projects at local middle & high schools. We are working with Success Academy High School of the Liberal Arts to provide internship opportunities to students who are interested in science, math, engineering, and programming.
