ICE-d over in Winnipeg.
The 2010 Inorganic Chemistry Exchange (ICE) program wrapped up with its annual workshop at the University of Manitoba on August 19-20, 2010. Ten undergraduate students from six provinces spanning the country and their faculty advisors gathered to present and discuss their summer research. Topics ranged from metallothionein to skutterudites, with much in between. Martin Stillman opened the morning with an invigorating lecture on "Why isn't blood green?" The ICE program, now in its eighth year, operates under the auspices of the CIC Division of Inorganic Chemistry. It is designed to provide talented undergraduate students with an opportunity to do inorganic chemistry research at an institution other than their own. Students or faculty wishing to participate in ICE 2011 should contact Chris Kozak (firstname.lastname@example.org).
