LGC_CIT_LogoRoad to Research (R2R): Meet the Researcher

The LGC partnered with the College of Engineering for this program which allowed CMU undergraduate and graduate students to virtually "meet" local Pittsburgh middle school students to share their research, talk about their lab experiences, participate in a Q&A session, and complete a related hands-on activity. Middle school students met a new researcher every two weeks in the afterschool time period or on certain Saturdays. 

We hope to be renew this program in the future.  Please enjoy the recorded presentations from Carnegie Mellon researchers (list in the box on the right), review the downloadable materials and supplemental how-to videos!
