Replication is vital for work to be considered scientific. Two things that can’t be replicated in a conventional chemistry classroom setting? The skills and experience gained on the Chemistry Crew.
This crew is essential for the operation of the chemistry program; students and faculty work closely together to set up labs for experiments, develop new experiments, purchase chemicals and supplies, maintain storage rooms and the inventory system, monitor laboratory safety, administer the hazardous waste programs, tutor students, grade lab reports, and maintain the science labs and buildings.
Why wait until graduate school to learn the ins and outs of a collegiate chemistry program?
