A symposium solely for undergraduate students that gives them the opportunity to present their research work in an oral format at major national meeting. Presentations cover a broad spectrum of the chemical sciences: environmental chemistry, chemical engineering, synthetic chemistry, analytical chemistry.
UNDERGRADUATES COLLABORATING FOR THE FUTURE
George Bollas (University of Connecticut), John Engelman (S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc.), Mary Moore (Eastman Chemical Company), Elmer Ledesma (University of St. Thomas)
Time and location:
March 28 and 29, 2011, Disney's Grand California Hotel, Anaheim, CA.
A one and a half day symposium solely for undergraduate students to present their research work in an oral format in a professional scientific meeting. Presentations cover a broad spectrum of the chemical sciences including environmental chemistry, analytical chemistry, chemical engineering, process chemistry , synthetic organic chemistry, and chemical education. In addition to the student presentations, there will be workshops on resume preparation, interview skills, and job networking. The symposium is sponsored by the Division of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry, a division of the American Chemical Society. The sympoisum will take place at the 241st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, California.
With a particular focus on undergraduate research and education, the symposium promises to clearly demostrate two themes of IYC 2011: encouraging the interest of young people in chemistry and generating enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry. It is hoped that any members of the public who plan to attend the symposium will garner an increased appreciation and understanding of chemistry and the chemical sciences in general, all from the presentations of undergraduate students, the leaders of tomorrow.
