Waksman Celebrated National Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day

On Thursday April 25, Waksman participated in the National Take our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Several labs arranged a special schedule to host ten children with fun activities for the day. In Dr. Charles Dismukes' lab, the children learned to make liquid nitrogen ice cream and from the looks on their faces, they had a great time.


The following Waksman staff and faculty made this happen: Matthew Marcello (Singson Lab), Nanci Kane, Ken Callanan, Charles Dismukes, Gennady Ananyev (Dismukes Lab), Vladimir Mekler (Severinov), Andrea Gallavotti, and Mary Galli and Iris Camehl (Gallavotti Lab).
