WHAT: Chemistry High School Lab Days offer an immersive experience for students to explore their passions and interests through college-level chemistry experiments such as burning snack foods to determine the energy given off and using organic reactions to prepare an antibiotic. 

Students will participate in a wide range of activities and experiments designed to give them a taste of college life while introducing them to the many opportunities available at Vincennes University.

Chemistry High School Lab Days also give students an opportunity to meet with current VU students, who will share their experiences and offer insights into college life.
