Learning chemistry helps us better understand the world around us and is critical to human, animal, plant and overall Earth health and sustainability. On National Chemistry Day at the Museum, children and families will have the chance to take part in interactive chemistry demonstrations, fun hands-on activities, and experiments. There will also be door prizes, as well as a student-illustrated, chemistry-themed poetry contest. Create an illustrated poem at the event or bring yours to the Museum by noon. Categories for prizes are K–2nd; 3rd–4th; 5th–8th; and 9th–12th grades.
This event is sponsored by the Eastern New York Section of the American Chemical Society.
