Bio Ph.D. Student featured CBS3-Philly Talk
April 20, 2012 — Biology Ph.D. candidate Anna Vorobyeva appeared on CBS local news on April 18, 2012 in a segment promoting the Philadelphia Science Festival. Vorobyeva and Josa Hanzlik of Biomedical Engineering showed viewers how to make a simple substance that functions as both a liquid and a solid, a non-Newtonian fluid called a colloid. The CBS segment is one of the many ways the Drexel community is participating in and promoting the annual Philadelphia Science Festival, which runs from April 20-29, 2012. Ashley Kalinsky and Shauna Henley organized the involvement of the Biology department graduate students in the Science Festival.
