National Chemistry Week

June 16th, 2010 by Bridget

National Chemistry Week was celebrated at the local middle school!  Anil Waghe, Marguerite Crowell, Kim Duncan, and four undergraduates led hands-on activities with Mr. Helgerson’s sixth graders.  Shannon Courcelle (chemistry education), AJ Dangelo and Jamie Reetz (physical science education), and David Ashley (chemistry) engaged students with investigations of pennies, silver, and copper and discussed the resulting reactions with an enthusiastic group of children.  A rainbow connection demonstration provided a dramatic finale to the day. “I was so impressed with Mr. Helgerson’s students.  We asked them if they could give us an example of an element, and they easily named a dozen!”  M. Crowell.
