LRSM Education & Outreach

video channel buttonThe LRSM is the site of the Penn Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, MRSEC, and, in addition to the forefront research being carried out, it also undertakes a significant amount of educational outreach programming in conjunction with this research effort. Programs have been developed over the past twenty years to provide outreach to many diverse communities. These include K-12 students and their teachers, undergraduates, graduate students and post docs, minority students and faculty, the local scientific community, and the general public. Through these programs the LRSM-associated faculty, staff, and students interact with the aforementioned groups to enrich their knowledge and appreciation of the materials research work being undertaken in our Laboratory. For more information on these outreach programs or to get involved, contact Mark Licurse, Director of Education (
