Gennady Gor: Outreach
Regional New Jersey Science Olympiad
Dr. Gennady Gor, with the help of ChemE graduate students, Chris Dobrzanski, Max Maximov and Ahn Tong, supervised the experimental design tour of 2018 Regional New Jersey Science Olympiad.
Mentoring High-School Students in the Lab
Each summer the Gor lab hosts high-school students carrying out research either through NJIT Provost High School Intern Program or the ACS SEED program (the summer research program for economically disadvantaged high school students). The duration of these programs is six weeks of full-time research activities. Students start from short intense training in Python programming, and within the first two weeks they obtain the tools to work on their research projects. Meanwhile, the specific goals for the projects are set, and the student starts working towards it. Each of the high school students work as a part of a group, the PI, a Ph.D. student and an undergraduate student. Interactions with researchers at different stages of the career provides an opportunity of learning about a career paths in research.
The former high-school students are listed here, along with the other group alumni.
