Energetic Ithaca College Chemistry Club students, along with their graduate student mentor from Cornell University, have planned a fun and informative NERM 2015 Undergraduate Program!!!
Wednesday, June 10th
On Opening Night, the “Poster Competition” will be held during the Undergraduate Poster Sessions (5:00 pm – 6:50 pm and 7:00 pm – 8:50 pm), where 65 undergraduate abstracts have been submitted. Winners of the competition will be announced and receive cool prizes at the following Undergraduate Social Night (9:00 pm – 10:00 pm), an event where undergraduate students will build camaraderie by playing a science version of the “Cards Against Humanity” game while enjoying lots and lots of snacks!!!
Thursday, June 11th
In the morning, the Undergraduate Program will start with Chemistry Demonstrations conducted by the Chem Club students. The students have put together a pamphlet of their favorite chemistry demos to share with peers! Included in this document are the procedures, relevant safety information, and the chemistry behind each of the demos. These pamphlets will be available at the program.
The second Undergraduate Program of the day is a Career and Graduate Student Panel Discussion where the students can hear stories, as well as, gather information directly from diverse chemistry professionals and graduate students on life in graduate school and career possibilities afterward.
Third and finally, the Undergraduate Program will conclude with an Undergraduates Lunch with Panelists. ($5 per student. Reservation is required during registration).
