dc.descriptionFrom the earliest days at Georgetown, science education was seen as an important function of the university. Chemical experiments were performed at Georgetown as early as 1813. At the commencement in 1844, a "Chemical Exhibition" was presented by the students. Lectures (accompanied by experiments) were given on the following topics: "The air of the atmosphere," "Combustion," "The compounds of carbon and hydrogen," and "Oxygen and the compound blow-pipe." By the 1870s, Georgetown required that students study chemistry in their sophomore and junior years and in 1880 a government report on the teaching of chemistry and physics in the U.S. cited Georgetown for its strong concentration on chemistry.en
