The School of Natural and Computational Sciences congratulates Crystal Garcia for being accepted as one of 28 participants in the UT Southwestern Scholars Program in Organic Chemistry (SPOC). This program begins Tuesday, June 1, 2010 and ends Thursday, August 5, 2010.
The SPOC includes an exciting research component in which students will be randomly assigned to one of two organic chemistry research projects. The experimental course content will include supplemental exercises, and a computer game or written exercises. All the selected students benefit from this program as both groups will receive a strong foundation in organic chemistry. and will participate in a clinical preceptorship.
Crystal is looking forward to the summer, “I hope to get some new insights into the medical profession as well as learning more organic chemistry!”
We wish her well and are hoping to get an email once in a while to let us know how she is getting on!
