See a demo of the Global Water Experiment at the Q2 Cape Cod Science Cafe

Join us tomorrow evening at the Cape Cod Science Cafe Q2 International Year of Chemistry celebration where we will have a live demonstration of the Global Water Experiment conducted by local area chemists. Click here for full event information and registration.

We're preparing our materials for the experiment and we will record the data on the Global Water Experiment website after the event. The goal is to have Cape Cod Science Cafe attendees and local area science educators partake in the world's largest chemistry experiment as a National Chemistry Week focused outreach exercise. Ideally we will encourage local college chemistry majors within the Northeastern region of the American Chemical Society  who attend the Cape Cod Science Cafes to mentor local high school students in their communities and get science educators to form teams to go into the K-12 schools in their neighborhoods. The Q4 celebration of the International Year of Chemistry will celebrate all the volunteers and attendees of the previous three Cape Cod Science Cafes featuring the local outreach experiences to school children in accordance with IYC Q4 theme: healthy kids.
