NOTE:

Additionally, given the current nature of the pandemic, masks are highly recommended.



Students of the Chemistry and Biochemistry department at Georgia Tech are hosting a free Chemistry Merit Badge Clinic on Saturday, November 6th, 2020*. 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 one signed waiver form (mandated by Georgia Tech), which can be found in the link below. They must be printed out and brought with you.



Please contact Christopher Allen (callen316@gatech.edu) or Nikhil Deshmukh (ndeshmukh22@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 circumstances and emergencies as long as proper documentation is provided. 


Event 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 only for the Scouts. Scouts should pack a lunch before coming to the event!
