 THE CIBA-GEIGY HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY INSTITUTE;
 SUMMER SCHOOL WITH A SCIENTIFIC TWIST
 ARDSLEY, N.Y., July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Twenty-five New York and New Jersey students are attending the High School Chemistry Institute sponsored by CIBA-GEIGY Corporation. The two-week program begins Monday, July 27.
 The Chemistry Institute was founded in 1989 by David Celmer, CIBA- GEIGY's manager of organizational development. The institute is intended to encourage gifted students to pursue a comprehensive science education while promoting awareness of science careers available after graduation.
 During the two weeks, the students will be introduced to college level organic chemistry, with special emphasis on industrial applications. Through lectures, experiments and laboratory demonstrations, they will explore why oil and water don't mix, how an oil spill can be cleaned and its environmental impact mitigated, and how plastics are changing the way cars and airplanes are made.
 The first week includes classes of industrial chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, monomers and polymers, and the component identification technique of chromatography. The classes will take place at Harrison High School, Harrison, N.Y. The second week sessions include polymer applications, coatings and surface chemistries, and spectroscopy studies analyzing the way products react with light. Second week classes take place at Pace University, Pleasantville, and CIBA-GEIGY headquarters in Ardsley, N.Y.
 The institute's faculty consists of 13 scientists and managers from CIBA-GEIGY, four science teachers from high schools in Harrison, White Plains and Yonkers, N.Y., and Ramapo, N.J., and two professors from Pace University. The participating students have demonstrated exceptional ability and interest in science, and have been recommended to the institute by their high school science departments.
 CIBA-GEIGY Corporation is a leading developer and manufacturer of healthcare, agricultural and industrial products. The company is committed to its integrated vision of social, economic and environmental responsibilities. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of CIBA-GEIGY Limited of Basel, Switzerland.
