Pre-First Year Summer Training

In order to integrate students with chemistry and physics backgrounds, the ChaMP program begins in the summer with three preparatory courses:

  :: Chemistry for Physicists
  :: Math for Chemists
  :: Laboratory Skills

The Laboratory Skills course integrates physics and chemistry students into one class, and develops the skills necessary to excel in modern laboratories.

The summer session concludes with lab rotations in which students work on short research projects in the labs of ChaMP faculty.
