Girls Day at the MIT Museum

Extracting chlorophyll from spinach leaves — hands-on demonstration run by WIC at last year’s Girls Day.

The MIT Museum will be holding its annual Girls Day on March 4th! This year’s theme is math. Last year WIC ran a booth where students could extract the chlorophyll from spinach leaves and observe how it fluoresces (red!) under UV light. It’s very exciting to see a photo from our demo used to promote this year’s event!
