Calvin Chem Camp features demonstrations and hands-on experiments designed to teach introductory chemical concepts using fun and entertaining methods. Chem Camps tackle sophisticated topics—things like acids and bases, fat analysis of foods and reactivity of metals—in a fun and intellectually challenging way.
The morning and afternoon camp sessions have different activities and are designed for students who are entering grades 6, 7 or 8 in the fall. Participants can expect lots of excitement!
