  • WHAT: A weeklong chemistry camp for Rhode Island girls in grades 6-8. Girls will come to URI every day (transportation not included) from 9 am to 4 pm April 20-24, and take part in a full day of interactive science education. Each day has a THEME, will include lunch and snack, and will allow girls to participate in hands-on science experiments. No experience is necessary, just an interest in science and a sense of fun! We will talk with female scientists in interesting professions, travel to Mystic Aquarium, and visit the Narragansett Bay Commission. THE CAMP IS FREE; students are expected to figure out their own transportation to and from URI daily.
  • WHO: Rhode Island girls in grades 6-8
  • WHERE: University of Rhode Island campus, Kingston, RI
  • WHEN: April 20-24, 2015; 9 am to 4 pm
  • Priority will be given to girls who did not participate in last year's program,
    and to girls in 8th grade.

Chemistry Camp 2015 is now full. We will continue to take applications for a wait list, and admit from there as space permits. People on the wait list who are not admitted for this year will get priority admittance next year for Chemistry Camp 2016.
