YCC Program in a Box - The Role of Chemistry in Global Security (2/9/2016)

Posted on February 9, 2016 at 2:10 PM

The ACS Webinar program holds two YCC-specific webinars per year. The webinar this semester was “The Role of Chemistry in Global Security.” We learned about some history of chemical and biological weapons, computer modeling to show effects of bioterrorism, and real life scenarios in which scientists worked with the government to respond to a potential threat. There was a follow-up session in which students could ask questions to the presenters, such as finding careers in security research.
