Hannah Bailey with students at EYU
Chemistry & Biochemistry researchers are featured in new short video promoting UCLA’s upcoming free annual science festival taking place on November 3, 2019.
 
Exploring Your Universe (EYU) is one of UCLA’s biggest annual events, drawing in thousands of children, parents, and friends from the Los Angeles community to our campus. 
 
Professors Margot Quinlan and Jose Rodriguez and Quinlan lab members postdoc Dr. Michelle Panzica and graduate student Hannah Bailey star in the video, which is just over two minutes in length.
 

Much of the video, produced by the UCLA Physical Sciences Division, was filmed in Quinlan’s Boyer Hall laboratory, “fly room”, and in the hall outside of her lab. The children visiting the Quinlan lab were decked out in the department's new state-of-the-art lab coats.
 
Each year, several of our faculty, postdocs and students participate in the EYU by giving hands on demonstrations to attendees. Click here to read about the department’s participation in the 2018 EYU. 
 
Organized by UCLA graduate students and run by volunteers, EYU has been a tradition to provide a day of free science education to all. For ten years, EYU has provided fun, hands-on experiments and presentations to curious minds and young future scientists alike. 
 
EYU 2019 will be one of the main events in celebrating UCLA’s Centennial, and so we are planning to expand all the EYU events this year. With more booths, improved exhibits, exciting speakers, and new activities, you won’t want to miss this year’s event!
