The students and faculty of the department are proud of our successful work together. Each year we send 10-15 students to present their research at the spring American Chemical Society meeting. Our students applying to medical school have been extraordinarily successful. We are also pleased to have internship opportunities with industrial partners in the region and around the country. Feel free to contact us with question or to arrange a visit to campus.

Halloween House

The UNI Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS), in collaboration with students from the Departments of Biology, Physics, and Earth and Environmental Science, will be hosting a “Halloween House” Friday, October 25th, 4:30-7:30 PM, on the second floor of McCollum Science Hall.  UNI students will be performing Halloween-themed science demonstrations and supervising hands-on activities in rooms such as the “Devil’s Den”, “Tesla’s Revenge”, “Fossil Gorge”, and “Creepy Crawlers”.

This event is free and open to the public.  Costumes are welcome.  The activities are intended for elementary age children, but can be enjoyed by children of all ages.  For more information, please visit our Halloween House page.
