Hands-on laboratory experiences are not just for kids! Most months, a different topic encourages adult audiences to put on lab coats, goggles and gloves and get a firsthand sense of cutting-edge research. This program is designed for participants ages 18 and older.

Generally held from 7 to 9 p.m., these do-it-yourself labs feature different topics ranging from epigenetics to microfluidics to nanotechnology to rapid prototyping and beyond.
