  • 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 16-20, 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.

Chemistry Camp 2018 is COMPLETELY FULL. If you have already filled out an application, Professor Levine should be emailing you within a week to let you know your status. If you have not, we encourage you to fill out an application anyway. That application will place you on a wait list that will entitle you to priority enrollment for next year. We do not anticipate that any new applicants will be admitted from the wait list to this year's program.
