Forensic Chemistry Summer Camp

The Physical Sciences Department at Grand Rapids Community College, in collaboration with the National Science Foundation (DUE -1140509), is offering two Forensic Chemistry Camps during the summer of 2015. 

The goal of the camps is to provide Grand Rapids area high school students who have an interest in science with the opportunity to use analytical instrumentation in an inquiry based forensic chemistry experience.  As part of the camp students will use gel electrophoresis, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) and other methods of analysis to find the perpetrator of a simulated arson crime. 

Enrollment is limited to 18 students per camp.  Please looks for 2016 dates next spring.
