All honors students must explain the chemistry behind each experiment on the pre-visit Google Forms. This must be thorough and understandable, as well as highlight the important features of each experiment. Student’s responses and completion of the above requirements will be assessed by the board on a pass/fail basis. Students will be sent periodic reminders about deadlines and remaining requirements throughout the semester. Remember, you must earn a B- or better in your chemistry course in order to fully earn honors credit.
