The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the University of Chicago emphasizes the interdisciplinary aspect of materials science. This Website is a metapage with links to all of the departments involved in the MRSEC, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, geoscience, and bioscience. A special feature of the MRSEC page is its Research Nuggets section that gives mini-lessons on recent discoveries at MRSEC. The "Nuggets" contain explanatory text, references, and illustrations (diagrams, photographs, or laboratory images) on topics in materials science such as templating, flow, and annealing. Users will also find an overview of the facilities, calendar of events, publications by faculty members, and research abstracts at the site. In addition, a nice section of links to outreach programs is featured. Learn about how the MRSEC has participated in public outreach projects with the Museum of Science and Industry and Chicago elementary schools and sponsored a science camp, teacher reeducation program, and minority outreach program, and more. The site is fully searchable too.
