Chemistry Research – at Bakersfield College

OChem Letters April 2014Sometimes, community colleges get a bad rap. Naysayers don’t respect these hallowed halls for their educational offerings, and students aren’t lauded for their scholarly work.

Our students prove those naysayers wrong. Here’s one example.

Chemistry professor Dr. Kenward Vaughn challenges his students to write about their alcohol chemistry findings, and publishes the best of the bunch in the OChem Letters journal.

This year’s journal features the scholarly work of six Bakersfield College students, who each conducted experiments and studied their findings, before writing research journal-quality manuscripts.

If you have a moment, I encourage you to take a look. The things Bakersfield College students can do are simply amazing!

    This is very inspirational. I think I may have my Biology students do some research as well.
