Do you like working with children? Do you want to be a reason why chemistry is fun and interactive for children? And for all James Scholar students, do you want to earn honors credit (without having to write essays)? Then we are a perfect fit! REACT is back for another fresh, fall semester!

General Chemistry

Prep room sessions are held in 219 Noyes, immediately to the left as you enter the lab room.

Volunteers will be scheduled randomly throughout the semester. Once scheduled, volunteers will receive their assignment through email at least one week prior to their visit.

All pending HCLA forms will be confirmed shortly. Please stay patient.
