Huang Fellows Design Science Kits for Children


The 2016 cohort of Duke Huang Fellows designed original concepts for simple, engaging and affordable teaching tools aimed at enhancing the science skills of elementary school children.

Today these custom science kits were delivered to the Expedition School in Hillsborough, NC, for its Science Days activities. Special thanks to the Duke TeachHouse for collaborating on the project.

The Huang Fellows Program trains students to understand science in the context of and in service to society. Fellows learn how to integrate ethics, policy and social implications into their scientific research. This highly selective program fosters a community of accomplished undergraduate scholars who will be trained in the sciences and grounded firmly in the liberal arts–and who will be well prepared to serve as leaders in sciences and the biomedical professions. The program is supported by a grant to the Duke Initiative for Science & Society from Dr. Andrew Huang.
