science education and applications.  Prof. Stevenson is the pictured on the upper right of the picture with a
molecular modeling structure on his head.
Involvement of Underrepresented Groups (e.g., Women) in Chemistry
Since 2004, the Stevenson Research Group has provided opportunities for women interested in chemistry and
research.  Many of the students working in Stevenson research have been female.  Diversity in the Stevenson
Research Group includes students of African-American, Asian, Indian, and Caucasian origins.
Teaching/Training Guest Students of Other Universities
The Stevenson Research Group has welcomed and trained several students and post-docs from other academic
institutions (e.g., universities) in the research area of new molecule synthesis and separation science.
Community Outreach to the Public (e.g., Purdue Fort Wayne's "Portal to
the Public
" and "PFW Day" at Science Central).  
The mission of Science Central is to provide inspiring and hands-on science education for people of all ages.  
The only science center in the region and the most-visited Fort Wayne museum, Science Central has more that
2.6 million visitors since opening its 70,000 square foot public facility in 1995.  Science Central partners with
museums, universities, school districts, radio and television stations, after-school, libraries, and government
agencies.
