Chemistry 7


    The Chemistry 7 program involves the study of the structure and properties of matter, atoms and the periodic table. The course will help students to gain an appreciation for science as it applies to the world around them in their every day lives. This is accomplished through hands-on labs, classroom activities, computer lab workshops, projects and demos.
