Northwestern labs show kids what it’s like to be a scientist

In a laboratory classroom deep within Northwestern’s Technological Institute, students take turns peering into microscopes, excitedly adjusting knobs and refocusing lenses to bring the cell samples into sharp relief. 

But these students aren’t Northwestern undergrads. They are members of Science Club, an afterschool science education program for middle school youth. These Science Club members, visiting from the new Family Focus site in Evanston, are on a field trip at Northwestern.
