Parents were more engaged than students!

We hosted groups of students + parents today as part of the Colorado Science and Engineering Fair. We set up 5 engaging, inquiry-based stations that highlighted the research that is underway in the guppy group at CSU. At each hands-on station, the parents enthusiastically answered questions before the students could!

Take-home message from today: You are never too old to be captivated by science 🙂
