The activity is a six week Science Enrichment Program for 38 grades 3 – 8 cognitively-gifted students in the Perry (Lake County, Ohio) Local School District focusing each week on one of the following areas of chemistry: organic, analytical, inorganic, physical, biochemistry, and polymer chemistry/materials science. Students meet once per week for 2 hours under the instruction of Dr. Chris Ciolli, a professional chemist, and Mrs. Kathleen Ciolli, a grades 1 – 8 certified teacher. Additionally, the Perry Local School District provides facilities and two staff members to assist with the program. Each program session involves approximately 30 minutes of lecture and discussion followed by 1.5 hours hands-on activities based on the topic covered. The activity is supported by the Northeastern Ohio ACS Local Section via a Bridging the Gap Nano-Grant for Celebrating IYC 2011 and Partners in Science Excellence via a competitive grant awarded to Mrs. Ciolli. Additionally, the Lubrizol Corporation provides lab supplies for the program. This program is a great way to celebrate IYC 2011 because the hands-on activities will help increase the students' awareness, understanding, and interest in chemistry.
