Students visit the U of A to conduct chemistry experiments in German.

The University of Arkansas recently hosted six high schools from around the state on campus for a day of chemistry and German immersion. 

On Saturday, March 4, students from Bentonville High School, Cabot High School, Central High School, Fayetteville High School, Mountain Home High School, and Springdale High School spent the day at the Fayetteville campus conducting chemistry experiments in German. 

In the morning, students learned about polymers in four separate experiments in the lab of professor Susanne Striegler of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences. And in the afternoon, they participated in a German language scavenger hunt under the direction of associate professor Kathleen Condray of the Department of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures

Funding for the German Chemistry Immersion Day was generously provided by the College of Engineering, Fulbright College, the Honors College, and the Office of Admissions.
