MVGS Chemistry Primer

(Both campuses)

Incoming sophomores are strongly encouraged to participate in the MVGS Chemistry Primer  with Mr. Laoradakis.  For those who cannot attend the in-person sessions, there is a virtual option for completing the material.

In-Person:

Mr. Laourdakis will be hosting a chemistry primer for incoming sophomores at each of the campuses. This will consist of three sessions.  The series will focus on topics in a general chemistry high school course to enable the students to get a jump start on their AP/dual enrolled materials. Topics will include units, conversions/dimensional analysis, bonding, periodic properties, trends, and basic laboratory equipment, safety, and techniques. This is a three part series. Please email (claourdakis@mvgshome.org) if you have any questions.

Warrenton Campus
