2012 California Chemistry Camp

I loved chemistry, perhaps for all of the wrong reasons (I like to blow things up.  I would point out that this is not all that unusual–the Mythbusters like to blow things up, too.  We never did blow anything up in chemistry, but I did get to set a small fire or two . . . sometimes even on purpose!).  At any rate, I’m delighted to pass on this announcement about a summer camp that helps blind and visually impaired high school students discover organic chemistry for themselves:

Announcing the 2012 California Chemistry Camp for Blind and Visually Impaired High School Students!

Would you like to learn how blind people tackle the very visual subject of organic chemistry successfully? Do you have a general love for science? Do you want to learn how you can do chemistry as a blind person just as successfully as your sighted peers? Do you want to apply the chemistry you learned to food such as olive oil? Are you interested in how blind professionals use science in their careers every day? Then the 2012 California Chemistry Camp is for you!

To read more about the camp and apply today online, visit: http://www.sixdots.org

The application will be open until at least March 20, 2012. Once you apply, we will review all applications and let each applicant know whether he or she has been accepted.

We will provide travel to and from the camp.

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you this May at Enchanted Hills Camp!

Best regards,

— Henry (Hoby) Wedler

Chemistry Camp Coordinator
