Oak Crest Institute of Science
March 9, 2011

I have been volunteering at Oak Crest for approximately 3 months. I love that they have given me the opportunity to learn and gain the experience in various analytical techniques that are usually required in today's job market.

There is no better way to learn than to be surrounded by a well equipped lab and people who are really interested in teaching.
