"Bonding with Chemistry" Day Camp

Three day camp participants standing at a bench in a lab participate in a chemistry activity.

The "Bonding With Chemistry" Day Camp for young scientists is an annual event organized by WCC that offers middle school students, especially girls, hands-on lab experiences in chemistry. The activities can cover topics such as electrochemistry, art chemistry, chemistry of the earth, chemistry in cooking, polymers, and more. In addition to participating in various chemistry-related activities and experiments, the participants are also taught how to make scientific observations and follow experimental procedures in laboratory notebooks.

Led by current Illinois chemistry graduate students and faculty, the event is all about playing and learning in chemistry to encourage young scientists entering 6th-8th grades to be excited about chemistry. Students of all genders are welcome! For more information, please contact: wccgirlsdaycamp@gmail.com.


Details TBD for the next day camp in Summer 2024.
