Getting ready for college chemistry

ChemBridge Program's high school students

Why are these Texas high school students from the ChemBridge Program smiling?

Perhaps it’s because they’re taking a course that lets them earn college chemistry credit and high school science credit. Perhaps it’s also because they’re visiting Freshman Research Initiative science labs at the University of Texas (UT) at Austin. UT developed ChemBridge for students in high schools that are underrepresented in postsecondary institutions, to acquaint them with its college chemistry program. 

Find out how ChemBridge is helping both students and their teachers succeed in chemistry in this NSTA Reports story.

    If you want a great way to have fun with the science while learning it twice as fast, go here: The games you will find there both engage and challenge and are designed for AP students. Good luck with the course and enjoy the games.
