AP Fridays at Purdue

Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Science Outreach, in conjunction with Chemistry Outreach, is excited to offer AP Lab sessions during the Fall 2017 semester at Purdue University.

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.


 8:30am Arrive to campus [HAMP 2244].
 9:00am to 12:30pm Teachers and students will complete the scheduled lab. 
12:30pm Teachers and students will walk to lunch with Outreach Coordinators (Purdue Union). 
Students can bring a lunch OR buy lunch.
1:45pm Teachers and students can meet their bus at the Purdue Union.
