Chemistry Summer Camp 2017 - Byblos

Byblos campus

The Department of Natural Sciences, as part of an initiative by the School of Arts and Sciences, is organizing its annual Chemistry Summer Camp.

The camp is geared towards high school students with general interest in majoring in chemistry and a possible future chemistry-related career. The summer camp provides students with experiential learning as they perform laboratory experiments on a daily basis with the help of our laboratory assistants. The camp provides an emphasis on hands-on laboratory experiments and interaction with experienced faculty. Participants will get a feel for synthesizing new compounds, experiencing bench-top wet chemistry and advanced chemical instrumentation first-hand. Interactive discussion will provide the required background knowledge and will further summarize and assess in-lab experiences. At the end of the camp, students are given a written exam and the top performers awarded five partial scholarships to LAU provided they enroll in the B.S. Chemistry program.
