Are you the next Bill Nye? See Chemistry at Work
Sept. 25, 27, and 29 • 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. • Rawls College of Business Administration, Room 101 • Taught by Dom Cassadante, professor of chemistry
All courses include demonstrations
Why Chemistry Gets a Bad Rap and Why It Really Shouldn't: Why students tend to gravitate to other forms of STEM education rather than chemistry, and why this might be short-sighted.
The Portrait of the Chemist as a Young Man: The trajectory of young scientists across generations, and why this has resulted in fewer younger people going into chemistry and STEM today.
Chemistry Really is Fun, and I'll Prove It!: A chemistry demonstration show that will highlight practical, interesting chemical principals and how they can be explained through hands-on chemistry. This lecture will require some audience volunteers. Lab coats and goggles will be provided. And yes, there will be an appearance by a chemistry wizard.
