Science Day

Please join Heidelberg University’s American Chemical Society (ACS) Chem Club for our first High School Science Day on Saturday, February 29th. This event is designed to expose high school students to different aspects of science - there is something to interest everyone! During the day, there will also be opportunities to speak with current Heidelberg students about their college life and to meet with the Admission Office.

There is no charge to participate in Science Day and lunch will be included. At the end of the day, participants will receive a free t-shirt and other swag. During lunch, students will have an opportunity to talk with faculty about life as a scientist.
