Alfred, NY - Alfred University
Ceramic & Glass Engineering Camp

The Alfred University Ceramic & Glass Engineering camp is for students who wish to learn about this exciting field. Students participate in fascinating hands-on lab experiences in ceramic processing & tape casting and glass melting & press forming, working alongside faculty. Ceramic Processing and Tape Casting: Ceramic components are at the heart of a vast majority of our everyday items, from cell phones to toilets. At the center of the manufacturing process is ceramic processing - using powders to make usable items. This summer lab exercise will focus on making a ceramic “sun-catcher” that will be fabricated using tape casting, lamination, and glazing, capturing aspects of both historical and advanced ceramic materials and processing techniques. We will discuss the chemistry involved, the reactions that occur at both room temperature and at high temperature, and how these processes affect the properties (light transmission, strength, etc.) of the ceramic component. Glass Melting and Press Forming: Glass is everywhere in our daily lives, from the screen on your cell phone and LCD television, to windows, bottles, and fiber optic cables. Unlike other ceramics and materials, glass is not a solid, but a super-cooled liquid. How glass is made, however, is an exciting and visually spectacular event, where raw materials (sand, limestone, and soda ash) are blended and melted at high temperature to form a viscous liquid that can be cast and shaped into objects. This lab exercise will discuss how chemistry affects glass properties and color, making glass, and stress in glass due to cooling. In addition, each student will cast a glass piece to take home! In the evenings, students have lots of fun participating in a variety of activities including indoor and outdoor games, movies, hikes, social gatherings at a local coffee house, a farewell party on the last night, and more. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships

Consumer Chemistry Camp

Alfred University’s Consumer Chemistry Camp is a dynamic camp for students aged 14-17 whowant to know more about the chemistry of food, toys, and household products. No prior chemistry background is needed! This camp is great for students who want some exposure to chemistry before taking it formally and for those who have already taken chemistry but want to learn more about its applications. Classes are taught by distinguished members of the Alfred University Chemistry faculty. The program emphasis is on learning and having fun!
Have you ever wondered . . .
• what makes diet soda sweet?
• how to pronounce the ingredients in your shampoo?
• what polymers are used in amusing science toys?
• how do I find reliable information about controversial ingredients?
This camp will help answer those questions and many more! You will discover how to interpret the ingredients lists of your favorite foods and products while learning some basic chemistry. Camp topics are tailored to student interests and students are given the opportunity to explore topics of individual curiosity. Daily labs include tie-dye, chromatography and distillation. Students take home a t-shirt, book and course binder. This camp enables you to develop a deeper understanding of household products in a fun and safe environment.
When not in classes, students will enjoy planned recreational activities such as indoor and outdoor games, movies, visits to a nearby lake for picnics and campfires, social gatherings at the Terra Cotta Coffee House and a farewell party on the last night. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships.

Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute

The Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute at Hobart and William Smith Colleges provides exceptional opportunities to explore the scientific, social, and humanistic perspectives of environmental issues.
The Institute offers a two-week, college-level interdisciplinary program for talented high-school students entering their junior and senior years. The program is designed as an introduction to a variety of environmental issues and perspectives on nature and our environment. Students will conduct research with faculty members in a variety of locations: on the HWS Scandling (a 65-foot vessel on Seneca Lake), in streams, quaking bogs, the Adirondack Mountains, and the Colleges' science laboratories.
Working in the field, in laboratories, in classrooms, and on a four-day Adirondack research trip, students will explore a range of topics in environmental policy, economics, and ethics, and come to see the natural world through the eyes of artists, historians, philosophers, and scientists. A love of nature, learning, and the outdoors provides the focus for this unique educational experience.
The Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute is located in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes region, on beautiful Seneca Lake.
