UWM’s Center for Student Involvement Awards SAS For High School Project

UWM’s Center for Student Involvement Awards SAS For High School Project

Over the past year, the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee student chapter of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy (SAS) has been involved in a project designed to expose students to spectroscopy through a forensic lab involving the absorption of automobile paint to local area high schools. Using a lab designed by our SAS members, we were able to introduce spectroscopy as a way to study forensic science. The labs were performed in area high schools and received high compliments from all involved. It was fun to work alongside the students and have the opportunity to introduce a technique that they would normally never get a chance to see. As a result of this project, on April 23, the Center for Student Involvement at UWM awarded us with the Student Organization Service Award. Only one other group was awarded this award on campus and we are greatly honored to have been chosen for this award. A special thank you goes out to Lisa Kendhammer, Hannah Wagie, Heather Adams, Brad Moran, Natalia Stein, Sarah Garvey and Steve Kopitzke for all of their hard work developing and implementing this project. We are continuing this project by visiting new high schools in the area this year and are eager to continue this endeavor in the future.

    It is a great to see such an outreach done by our student sections. I hope other student sections can build on this effort!
