AP Fridays at Purdue

Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science Outreach, in conjunction with Chemistry Outreach, is excited to offer AP Lab sessions in the K-12 Outreach Lab at Purdue University, West Lafayette.

The purpose of these lab sessions is to provide schools with the time and support needed to conduct suggested AP Labs in a guided-inquiry format on a college campus. Participation in one of the scheduled labs would help to ensure AP students have access to necessary resources outlined in both the AP Environmental Science and AP Chemistry curriculum frameworks that are requirements of the AP Course Audit.


The AP Lab sessions are FREE to any participating high school that registers to attend. Space is limited. Teachers will be able to register their classes on a first-come, first-served basis.


Time Place
8:30 am Arrive to campus [HAMP 2244].
9:00 am to 12:30 pm Teachers and students will complete the scheduled lab.
12:30pm Lunch and depart
