Celebrate Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry during National Chemistry Week at Sci-Tech!
Watch exciting stages shows and get hands on as we explore chemistry in space exploration. Activities are free with admission.
Tuesday Oct 23rd – Saturday Oct 27th 10:00am-1:00pm
Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry is part of a nationwide festival of educational programs through the National Informal STEM Education (NISE) Network and focuses on ways to experiment, explore, and tackle challenges with chemistry. Chemistry is all around us—it’s in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the medicines we take, and much more. But many people don’t see this field of science as personally relevant or interesting. Through exciting experiments, the Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry event will get participants thinking about chemistry connections in their everyday lives, and unlock their confidence to discover, create, and problem-solve with chemistry. With the right attitude, no challenge is too big for chemistry!
Taking place during National Chemistry Week, this years theme set by The American Chemical Society’s (ACS) is “Chemistry is out of this world,” with a focus on chemistry of and in outer space.
