Course Description

This course provides students with the opportunity to learn more advanced laboratory techniques and become familiar with special chemical handling. Safe general laboratory practice and accurate record keeping (laboratory notebook) are emphasized.

The project may be a more detailed investigation of a course topic or one that is independent of specific course content. The research topic may be proposed by either the instructor or the student; but, ultimately, the specific topic must be clearly defined and agreed upon by both.
