The physical sciences lay the foundation for the life sciences as well as help prepare students for careers in physics, chemistry and engineering. In addition, physics and chemistry are important in understanding polymers and in the growing areas of biophysics and biochemistry. This intensive weeklong camp will emphasize a hands-on laboratory experience as well. Students attending this camp will explore the following topics: chemical dyes, chromatography, spectroscopy, polymers, holography, superconductivity, X-ray diffraction and thermodynamics. The students will also take home some of the laboratory projects done in this camp.
