Chemistry Topics Extension Workshop and Other Useful Science Things

This session is for students who have already taken high school chemistry and wish to pursue it at the collegiate level in the future. Gaps in chemistry education between what students learn in general high school chemistry courses and the rigors of collegiate level general chemistry will be addressed. Some additional time may be spent incorporating graph reading techniques and other useful tips and tricks to increase scores on the science portion of standardized tests (the ACT, for example). The session’s time will be split between learning new content, doing laboratory experiences, analyzing data, and performing calculations.


Location

The Workshop will be held in the Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood College Campus. The science center is a K-16 building that serves science students of all ages. 1000 Edgewood College drive, Madison, WI
