UP ACME holds thesis symposium for UPD Chemistry undergraduates

The University of the Philippines Association of Chemistry Majors and Enthusiasts (UP ACME) held “Thesis It!”, an online undergraduate thesis symposium last October 3 and October 10 via Zoom and Facebook Live. The online event targeted the chemistry undergraduate students of the Institute of Chemistry, University of the Philippines Diliman to introduce them to the various chemistry research laboratories in the Institute and to guide them in determining which Chemistry specializations they may intend to pursue in the future. 

For both event days, Thesis It! had over a hundred participants not only from the UP Diliman, but also from constituent and non-constituent universities in Luzon, such as the University of the Philippines Los Banos, De La Salle University, and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila. 

The event featured 9 speakers from the different chemistry laboratories in the Institute of Chemistry who shared insights on their laboratories’ specializations, their ongoing and upcoming research projects, and the measures and protocols they have established in their laboratories due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Participating laboratories include those specializing in Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Natural Products Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, and Computational Chemistry. The BS Chemistry students of UP Diliman were also given ideas as to how they can file an application to these laboratories for their thesis. 

UP ACME hopes that Thesis It! helped create an avenue for BS Chemistry students to decide on which specialization they should pursue for their thesis as well as for their career as the future Siyentista ng Bayan
