Students Learn Esters Hydrolysis

DDC’s Talent Search (TS) students have a unique opportunity to take science enrichment courses at Columbia as participants in the inaugural year of the Science Discovery Program (SDP).  The idea of the program is to provide science learning opportunities for high school students who otherwise could not test into Columbia’s Science Honors Program. DDC’s TS students select from courses offered by graduate students in various Columbia divisions who have the interest in sharing their work solving current science problems and exploring science topics not typically part of NYC high school curricula.
