Description: Join us as we explore the teaching and research capabilities of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at UCCS. You will learn more about the student-centered, active learning teaching environment at this small school that prioritizes student success, and examine the undergraduate-led research the UCCS faculty are completing in the areas of analytical chemistry (whiskey flavor-profile analysis, “forever chemical” analysis in Fountain Creek), physical chemistry (nanotechnology with carbon nanotubes), and biochemistry (DNA, protein, and membrane structure analysis).  Among the highlights will be tours of the technological resources available to undergrads, hands-on laboratory experiences, and one-on-one discussions with Chemistry/Biochemistry faculty and current students. Come explore how local high school teachers can benefit from collaborative interactions with UCCS.
