Welcome Scouts and Parents!



NOTE:

AT LEAST ONE PARENT MUST ACCOMPANY HIS OR HER SCOUT AT ALL TIMES THROUGHOUT THE EVENT. This is in complaince with Georgia Tech's new Youth Programs Policy which came into effect May 2017. The link to this policy can be found here
: youthprograms.gatech.edu.



The Alpha Omega chapter of Alpha Chi Sigma, the professional chemistry fraternity, at Georgia Tech is hosting a free Chemistry Merit Badge Clinic on Sunday, October 29th, 2017*. All scouts are allowed, and there is NO restriction on council or district. There are NO prerequisites for scouts. There are only 60 slots available per clinic. Scouts need to bring 2 signed waiver forms (mandated by Georgia Tech), which can be found in the links below. They must be printed out and brought with you.



Please contact Puneeth Guruprasad (puneethguruprasad@gmail.com) or Aashna Punwani (apunwani3@gatech.edu) if you have any questions. 



*We will be requiring all Scouts to deposit $15 which will be returned upon arrival* 



This new policy is to ensure that scouts who have signed up for the event attend the event. In the past, many Scouts who have signed up did not show, making it unfair for others who wished to attend. We will be making exceptions to Scouts facing with extreme circumanstances and emergencies as long as proper documentation is provided. 


Description

Our Merit Badge Clinic consists of a series of interactive lectures with demonstrations to teach the fundamentals of chemistry. These lectures will include topics such as chemical reactions, environmental science, and a tour of a functioning chemical lab right on campus. 



Registration for the event starts at 10:30 A.M at the Molecular Science and Engineering Building at Georgia Tech. Our sessions will begin at 11 A.M., and the clinic will last until around 3 P.M. Please see below for driving and parking instructions. 



There will be a short break for snacks provided by Alpha Chi Sigma (only for the Scouts). Parents should pack lunch for their Scouts before coming to the event!
