Arriaga group participates in Amantes de la Ciencias

Members of Professor Edgar Arriaga's research group participated in the Science Museum of Minnesota's outreach event Amantes de la Ciencias (Lovers of Science). This event is designed to introduce Science Museum visitors to science and education professionals from the Twin Cities' Latino and Hispanic communities.

Arriaga Research Group members have participated in Amantes de la Ciencias for the past four years. This year, they presented demonstrations showing how fluorescence and magnetism can be used with cells. The demonstrations were done with superparamagnetic magnets, lasers, invisible ink, and labeling cheek cells.

In addition to Arriaga, volunteers included Margaret Donoghue, Ben Fossen, Michelle Henderson, Ayoung Noh, Scott Rose, Chad Satori, Thane Taylor, and Gregory Wolken.
