We’d like to thank everyone who came out to see the lab for Farm Day 2016!
During Farm Day 2016 we had over 150 visitors from the local community come by to enjoy science demonstrations while learning about how pesticides, heavy metals, and crop nutritional monitoring are important to all of us, and see exactly how we actually test for them.
Education is a big part of what we do and we love events like this because they give everyone around us a chance to participate in what we’re passionate about. If you weren’t able to make it this year, we hope to see you next November!
All visitors had the opportunity to walk through the steps of how food is homogenized and pesticides are extracted through samples, and also learning about how metals are detected using the most advanced equipments for ICP-OES and ICP-MS.
