Rich Karpowicz receiving first prize in the Organic Chemistry II Division from Dr. Liz Papish.
John Meyers receiving his second prize in the Inorganic Chemistry Division.
Tapan Patel receiving second prize in the Biochemistry Division.
While waiting for the Plenary talk by Paul Chirik from Cornell University, Rich says, "You see, there's this big round hole..." Pat and Tapan don't believe it. It has got to be square. Dr. Burmeister and Andrea are more interested in the camera. Dan is doing his home work and listening to something else.
While exploring the Salisbury campus, the Delaware delegation discovered some statues of interest.
