#NCW Kick-Off Event at Museum of Science Boston
We are really looking forward to Bassam kicking off the Northeastern Section of the American Chemical Society National Chemistry Week event at the Museum of Science on Sunday October 23, 2011. Lectures and demonstrations at 1pm and 4pm.This is the 11th year that this program has run.
|L to R: Hillary Butts, Allison Harbottle, Mike Lynch, Lauren Gagnon|
Preparations have begun:
|Hand-sanitizer from scratch|
|The bead indicates it's time for sunscreen...|
|Mike and Lauren were having fun with goldenrod paper: writing disappearing messages (of love)|
The NCW volunteers practiced the
experiments last weekend in the comfort of the laboratory in the basement of the Museum of Science (see photos above). The tests were timed at each bench and modifications were made to make them field-friendly ie) preparing for being stationed at a table in the museum and engaging passer-bys with their chemistry experiment on Sunday October 23.
