Creation Discovery Museum | MAP
2701 W. Cypress Creek Rd. Ft. Lauderdale, Fl 33309

CSI is offering a college preparatory chemistry lab for high school students. The students will be able to experience Chemistry presented from a Creation perspective. The course is designed to give students extensive laboratory experience covering the nature of chemistry, the classification, structure, and changes in matter, atomic theory, the periodic table, chemical bonding, formulas, reactions, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, kinetics, acids and bases, atomic structure, molecular geometry, the gas laws, and equilibrium.

All six classes must be completed for a certificate of completion. The program will provide 30 hours of college preparatory chemistry lab. There will be a $25.00 Lab book fee which will be provided in the first class. Each student must bring his/her lab book to each class for the remainder of the program. The course will be led by Johnny Maury, M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering.
