Molecular Science Reserch Building
Summer Outreach Activity
June 22, 2021
This year, a group of students from secondary and elementary schools participated in the virtual outreach activity “Verano virtual” hosted by the Molecular Science Research Center. Dr. Dina Bracho (NIEF imaging specialist) organized the workshop “Fluorescencia en la vida diaria”. This workshop allowed the student to learn about the fluorescence phenomenon by doing hands-on laboratory experiments under the parent’s supervision. The student enjoyed extracting the chlorophyll from spinach and visualizing the fluorescence of chlorophyll and olive oil using a black-light.
