Virtual Tour

We would have loved to have here on campus with us. There is so much to show you. Please take a look at a few of these digital resources to get an idea of what our facilities look like.

Pre-Tour Video:

This is the video we show to guests before they tour the facilities at Wilson Lab

3-D Walk Through:

Step into the first floor of Wilson lab and check out a portion of the experimental hall. We are working towards expanding this environment.

How are we doing?

We value your input on your experience this summer so please expect an anonymous survey via email that will help us make the summer student program as beneficial as possible.
