Chemistry Camp

Chemistry Camp: October 20 – 22

Join us for this enjoyable and intensive 3-day session, led by co-founder of Senspoint LLC, Dr. Hoby Wedler. In this session, students will learn how blind and low vision professionals use chemistry in their careers. They will explore ways to make chemistry accessible, perform hands-on experiments, apply techniques to some basic cooking chemistry, see chemistry come alive in an exhilarating magic show and interact with blind and sighted scientists. There will also be general camp fun and evening activities. Ten to fifteen blind high school students ages 14-18 will be selected to participate.

Throughout the weekend, students will have quality time to socialize amongst themselves and with blind mentors and instructors. Students will be put into groups of three and each group will work with a sighted lab assistant during Chemistry exercises. Blind mentors and instructors will also be on hand to provide support and act as role models for blind students and sighted lab assistants alike.

Apply today.
