Lunch with an Expert continued at Killip Elementary this month with expert Dr. Cindy Browder. Dr. Browder is an associate professor at NAU in the Chemistry Department. Dr. Browder is not only a professor, but also a researcher. She talked to the 5th graders about some inventions she's been working on. She brought along a prototype for a solar power storage unit, somewhat akin to a battery, but smaller and more sustainable. Dr. Browder also discussed how to go through the patent process when you have an invention you want to patent.
Thank you Dr. Browder for inspiring our Killip 5th graders!
