Ms. Sasima (Boom) was a representative of N-BMR team to give a pitch in “Promoting I with I” event on March 6 at Pullman Bangkok Hotel G. Boom did a great talk to introduce S2-soap (a soap bar containing gold nanoparticles). As well, all N-BMR members especially graduate students put a lot of effort for this pitching.

Dr. Dakrong Pissuwan joined STEM workshop entitled “Nanoparticles and Environment” for high school teachers on March 4. Dr. Sujin Jiracheewanun from KMUTT (STEM Mentor) and students from N-BMR lab including a visiting scholar student also contributed in this STEM workshop under this topic. The workshop was organised by Center of Excellence on Environmental Health and Toxicology EHT center, Chulabhorn Graduate Institute. At the end of the workshop, the distribution of a brochure of Thai & International Undergraduate Programs of Faculty of Science, Mahidol University was also done. This might lead more chance to introduce all programs to high schools.
