Discover more about chemistry in a fun and intellectually challenging way at Calvin's summer Chem Camps. Our week-long camps are designed for students entering 6th, 7th and 8th grade and introduce basic concepts of chemistry through demonstrations and hands-on experiments.
Our chemical demonstrations program is held each May and is designed to introduce 5th and 6th grade students to the world of chemistry. This free 75-minute program consists of a series of highly visual chemical demonstrations with age-appropriate explanations of the science behind the demonstrations. All local schools and the home school community are welcome to attend our program.

Calvin College's Project SEED program was the largest program in Michigan as it served one-quarter of the participants in the state last summer, 2012.
This summer, 2013, we will once again offer this research internship program to high school students who meet academic and family income requirements. The 2013 program will take place June 10 through August 2. Participants are supervised by a Calvin faculty-mentor and will receive a $2500 fellowship award for 8 weeks of full-time work.
High school seniors who have participated in the Project SEED summer program are eligible to apply for a one year, non-renewable college scholarship of up to $5,000. Learn more »
