Please See Information For Attendees Below From Director Of Recruitment Jason Stack:

Hello,

I am excited that you will be attending our first annual Pharmacy Exploration Day during the week of June 25-29! It is approaching fast and I wanted to give you some important information regarding the camp. Please read through the following information:

1. SCHEDULE

Please arrive between 7:45-8 a.m. to allow for time to sign-in and get to the first station of the day. The tentative schedule for the day is from 8:15 a.m.-4 p.m. In our flyers and our website, we have it listed as ending time at 5 p.m. We left an hour "buffer" time in case we ran over any of the stations throughout the day. Please arrive between 4-5 p.m. to pick-up your child. The drop-off and pick-up information is on this map.

A schedule of events can be viewed here.

2. ONLINE FORMS (Required)

3. EXPLORATION DAY DRESS REQUIREMENTS

Two of the labs that we will be touring have dress requirements. The requirements state participants entering either of these labs must wear close-toed shoes (no sandals) and long pants. Any of our participants that are not wearing long pants and close-toed shoes will not be allowed in these two labs. Participants that are not appropriately dressed will have to sit out those sessions during the demonstrations. Students that would like to wear open-toed shoes and shorts can do so but must bring a pair of close-toed shoes they can put on and pants (sweatpants) that they can slip over their shorts for these two labs. Students may want to bring a draw string bag or backpack to store the shoes and pants in for the stations that do not require them.

4. DROP-OFF and PICK-UP AREA

The Exploration Day is intended for parents to drop off their son/daughter for the day and then pick them back up at the end of the day. We have a designated area for drop-off/pick-up. Please see the attached map. The drop-off and pick-up area is the same area on bluff street behind Mellon Hall of Science and Bayer Learning Center. Parents who choose to stay for the day will need to park in the Forbes Avenue Garage. Daily Parking Rates will apply.

5. DOWNLOAD APPS

Students are required to bring a mobile device with them to the exploration day. Two of our stations will use a mobile app and will be interactive with their mobile device. We are recommending students download the two following apps prior to exploration day;

Kahoot!

Students will use Kahoot! to enter the answers to basic pharmacy math problems. Students should either download the app or bookmark the website. Students will be given the game PIN at the start of the game.
