This program is for rising 6th-8th graders interested in diving into the exciting world of chemistry! Chemistry Science Fair draws students in with a series of exciting hands-on labs. Specific labs will vary year to year and in accordance with the interests of the students. Some labs borrow from science fair projects utilized in recent competitions. Here are a few examples:
-Chemistry of Art: Students examine the chemistry of colors, pigments, and dyes.
-Forensic Chemistry: Students solve forensic mysteries by examining fibers and trace materials.
Students break away from hands-on research to engage in competitive activities, completing science bowl type questions and activities related to knowledge of chemistry. Film clips of famous chemists inspire our budding scientists. We also cover career paths in chemistry.
