Safety attire

Each day during OCTET, you will be going on a tour of a chemistry research lab. This will be an incredible experience! To be admitted to the labs you must be wearing long pants and closed-toe shoes. So be sure to either wear these or bring them with you so you can change before the tour.



Most technology will have a scientific calculator built in (i.e. if you turn your iPhone sideways while using the calculator). If the technology you plan to bring does not have a scientific calculator built in or if you do not plan to bring technology, please bring a calculator with you. See you in July!

Pick-up and Drop-off

Parents that signed the consent form will be authorized to pick students up from camp each day. If you would like to authorize someone else to pick up the student, please let us know on the first day of camp (or e-mail Take a look at where other students are coming from in the earlier post with the announcement of participants. You might be able to set up a carpool if you are coming from far away – we will just need you to authorize another parent to pick up the student. 🙂

Please see the attached PDF for details about OCTET!


Remember to bring

  • technology (i.e. a cell phone, tablet or laptop) if possible
  • a three-ring binder

Lunch will be provided each day, so you don’t have to worry about bringing that!

Looking forward to meeting you all on July 6!
