The Chemistry Immersion Program (CHIP) will take place from July 20 through July 25, 2014. CHIP is a one-week program during which CHIP Scholars will have valuable opportunities to enhance knowledge of key concepts in chemistry and biochemistry as well as gain valuable experience with laboratory technology while staying in MU campus housing with all housing and dining expenses covered for those who qualify.
CHIP Students will complete four two-hour labs in chemistry and four two-hour labs in biochemistry and gain valuable experience with laboratory technology. Our goal is to engage students on multiple levels: laboratory investigations into chemistry and biochemistry concepts, exploration into laboratory technology, collaboration with peers to analyze and interpret data, and exploration of career opportunities related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics [STEM] during evening seminars.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to reinforce their knowledge of chemistry and biochemistry in preparation for college. The expectation is that CHIP Scholars will take what they have learned through CHIP and use that knowledge to make a successful collegiate science experience. We are also encouraging CHIP Scholars to investigate undergraduate research opportunities for students at MU or at the university they plan to attend.
