Since 2016 Miami Regionals' Middletown campus has hosted our annual "Chemistry Education & Career Day." Over 80 high school students and faculty join us for a day of hands-on chemistry experiments followed by lunch featuring several speakers with Miami connections.  Each student completes two experiments including the synthesis of indigo dye, electroplating iron nails, UV-VIS spectrophotometric analysis, making water from its elements, and investigating the delicious chemistry of food.  During lunch, several Miami chemistry alums talked with the students about their professional careers and educational experiences.  

The event is sponsored by grants from the American Chemical Society and Pearson Education, along with support from many offices from Miami Regionals.
