We have a summer in Storrs for you!

UConn's Pre-College Summer Chemistry course provides high school students the opportunity explore the vast realm of chemistry through hands-on exposure at a nationally ranked public university campus.

Where will the future take you?

That’s a hard question to answer, especially for high school students. UConn’s Pre-College Summer can help students figure it out. Studying Chemistry, a popular undergraduate major here at the University of Connecticut, is a great choice for students interested in a broad range of science topics, including medicine and pharmacy. Offered during Sessions 1 and 2, our Chemistry course provides a strong emphasis on hands-on laboratory experiments and interaction with experienced faculty. Participants will get a feel for making new compounds and see 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.

This 1-week course will explore the areas of chemistry that touch on daily life:

  • Synthetic food additives
  • Drugs (aspirin)
  • Colors (dyes) in paints
  • Students will have the opportunity to view and interact with a number of demonstrations and experiments.

All safety equipment necessary for being in our state-of-the-art teaching laboratories (gloves, goggles and lab coats) will be provided. Due to chemistry laboratory safety regulations, students will be required to wear long pants and closed toed shoes during the entire chemistry course (the chemistry building is air conditioned).
