Briton Bio-Chem Camp

Monday, June 19, 2017 until Thursday, June 22, 2017

Albion College
611 E Porter St
Albion, MI 49224
United States

Get your first taste (pun intended) of college chemistry and biochemistry with the Briton BioChem Camp!  Briton Biochem Camp will focus on the biochemistry of the five the senses:  Taste, Texture, Smell, Sight and Sound.

We will start with chemistry that provides Ice Cream of just the right taste and texture.  Next, we explore Nature: budding Briton Biochemists will isolate and identify essential oils from plants, and then synthesize flavor and scent compounds to explore the relationship between chemical structure and biological activity. Then we will take advantage of sight to learn how bio molecules can be separated and purified for everything from vaccines to food additives.  Finally, we will listen as chemical energy is turned into sound in a rather explosive manner.

Cost of the camp is $799 and is due by April 15th
