Science Cafe

The Davis Science Café series was founded in 2012 by Professor Jared Shaw with the UC Davis Department of Chemistry, initially supported by the National Science Foundation and currently supported by the UC Davis Department of Chemistry and UC Davis Division of Math & Physical Sciences, and promoted by CapSciComm.Over the years, the #DavisSciCafe has been held at the Arboretum, Crepeville, de Vere’s, and most recently has settled in at G. St. Wunderbar. Café topics have spanned the likes of milk science, wine science, sea level rise, hyperdimensional geometry, and coral reef ecology. So come on by, and let’s drink to science! Hosted on the second Wednesday of each month. Free to the public!

MME Science Showcase

An annual event held at Marguerite Montgomery Elementary (MME), a Davis elementary school. This science expo brings local groups and organizations to the school for a day of science demonstrations and hands on activities to the students, grades K–6. Our group always enjoys sharing our excitement for chemistry and science with the young students!

UC Davis REU

The UC Davis ChemEnergy REU aims to provide diverse undergraduate students with a unique 10-week research experience tackling state-of-the-art research problems in energy, materials, catalysis, and biotechnology. REU students will live on campus and work alongside faculty and graduate students to gain a unique perspective on modern chemistry research. This program is supported by the National Science Foundation and our group is actively involved in mentoring REU students each year!
