Program Dates: June 14–18, 2010.
Rock Camp is a one week, all expenses paid program for undergraduate chemistry and physics majors.
Rock Camp incorporates materials synthesis and characterization lectures
and labs to prepare students to excel in solid-state inorganic chemistry
and materials research. This rigorous week of Rock Camp will expose students
to both the kinetic and thermodynamic aspects of materials synthesis and
the experimental tools used to characterize the resulting materials. Lectures
will be used to introduce concepts that will be reinforced in hands-on
Eligibility: Applicants should have completed one year of college physics and one year of college chemistry to be eligible.
