The Physical Sciences Department, in collaboration with the National Science Foundation, is offering two free Forensic Chemistry Camps during the summer of 2014.
The goal of the camps is to provide Grand Rapids area high school students who have an interest in science with the opportunity to use analytical instrumentation in an inquiry based forensic chemistry experience. As part of the camp, students will use gel electrophoresis, high-performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and other methods of analysis to find the perpetrator of a simulated arson crime.
The camps will be held in the Science Center July 7th-11th and July 14th-18th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (1:00 p.m. on Fridays). Early applications are encouraged. Enrollment is limited to 18 students per camp and last year they were over capacity. Apply here!
