On July 2, 2019 Dr. Raluca Gearba presented a microscopy seminar to students from the Green Energy at Texas (GREAT) program. The seminar highlighted the cutting edge microscopy techniques in TMI and also included a tour of the microscopy facilities coupled with demo activities. In particular, Dr. Gearba highlighted the capabilities of the Scios 2HiVac microscope recently acquired by TMI using NSF/MRI funding.
The GREAT program is designed to connect Austin Community College students in contact with UT Austin researchers from the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering in the area of green energy.
The seminar was attended by 12 ACC students, one of their professors and Dr. Sean Roberts, the UT coordinator of the program.
