Letting high school chemistry teachers know about the upcoming Chemistry/Biochemistry Career Day, an annual event at University of Missouri–St Louis on Friday, May 5th:
Sponsored by the St Louis Section–American Chemical Society, the objective is to introduce high school science students to careers in chemistry and biochemistry and have them observe activities in those areas. Your visit will include tours of research laboratories and instrument facilities, and chemistry demonstrations by the UM–St Louis Chemistry Club.
In the department tour, research in biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry will be featured and major instruments to be demonstrated include x-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry and electron microscopy. The “central science” nature of chemistry and biochemistry are tied in to other careers, such as those in healtcare.
Lunch (pizza, etc.) starting at about 11:30 a.m. concludes the event.
For more details, please see the invitation letter. If you would like to bring your class group to participate in Career Day, please respond by Friday April 21st, 2017, to Leah Trimble (516-5311, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) with the number of students who will attend.
