Melissa Eblen-Zayas and students.Physics professor Melissa Eblen-Zayas (center) and sophomores Marlea Liams (left) and Kim Rocha (right) investigate the properties of Newtonian and non-Newtonian liquids as part of the HHMI-funded Science Scholars Workshop during the 20006 winter break. Here they are seen measuring the viscosity of various fluids, as they explored how the viscosity of non-Newtonian liquids varied as a function of the stirring rate. The pair then applied what they had learned to design demonstrations and lab activities about non-Newtonian liquids that could be incorporated into professor Eblen-Zayas’ materials science course. Marlea and Kim went on to become science majors in Physics and Psychology, respectively.
