The fall section of Honors General Chemistry I (pictured above with their instructor, Dr. Jeremy Burkett) crafted and presented Original Proposals for Research. The students used current and existing technologies as the basis of their proposals of original, unique ideas for future research projects. All presentations included a description of an existing scientific issue or global, medical, or economic need and how the students proposed to address that issue with their new research initiative. Each talk was followed by a short question and answer period. This spring the students will be preparing and conducting unique chemistry demonstrations to perform for onlookers.
