Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Lecturers Dr. Jerrod Henderson and Dr. Troy Vogel with undergraduate and graduate students led students as part of the University of Illinois’ Exploring Your Options summer camp.
The week-long program introduces high school juniors and seniors to the field of engineering. The participants interact with engineering students and faculty members, plan and build a project, and engage in hands-on activities prepared by departments within the College of Engineering.
The session took place June 9-15 with another scheduled for July 7-13. The students extracted DNA from strawberries and determined the best detergent to remove grass stains.
