Macro and micro nutrients are paramount to the success of athletes.

Sports Chemistry will highlight the depth of science that goes into numerous sports nutrition products that are on the market today.

After an exploration of several analytical chemistry techniques, students will verify nutrient content and then apply this information to make recommendation to athletes.

Students will use their problem solving skills, micro pipetting and spectroscopy techniques to prepare standards, determine a standard curve and apply their results to reveal nutrient content of samples.
