Exploring Life in the Lab at Northwestern

From electron microscopy to the all-you-can-eat buffet at Sargent Hall, 60 Evanston Township High School (ETHS) students got a chance to experience life at Northwestern when they visited the university last week. The students from Ms. Jenna Paplaczyk’s Biology with Support classes learned about authentic scientific research when they visited two advanced imaging facilities and two research lab spaces.
