The Summer Research Academy in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (SRATCC) 2012 will be conducted in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Texas Tech University (TTU) from June 11 to July 6, 2012.  Organized by Associate Professor Jorge A. Morales along with Professors David Birney, Greg Gellene, Bill Hase, and Bill Poirier, this program encourages broadening participation in theoretical and computational chemistry research for local high school students and teachers.  This year, four students and one teacher were chosen from Estacado High School, Lubbock, Texas, to work alongside the organizing professors on research projects supported by the National Science Foundation, the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, and The Welch Foundation. By the end of the program, the high school participants will present the results of their research in a public session in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, followed by a closing dinner. SRATCC 2012 is financially supported by the TTU School of Arts and Sciences, The TTU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the TTU Office of Institutional Diversity, and the grants of the organizing faculty members.
