JOIN CHEMISTS AND GIRL SCOUTS TO CELEBRATE EARTH WEEK
Volunteers are being sought to perform a variety of scientific demonstrations highlighting the chemistry of algae (good, bad and ugly), i.e. exploring polymers by making worm goo from sodium alginate, discovering how early forms of algae stromatolites provided the oxygen for earth’s present-day atmosphere, determining the presence of chlorophyl in algae by fluorescence and more. Stations will be set up for hands on demos with groups of Scouts rotating through the various demos. The Scouts range in age from 5 to 13. Materials will be supplied, and volunteers will be trained as necessary.
Saturday, April 22, 2023, 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM. Volunteers are asked to arrive at 12:00 pm to be trained and help with set up and stay till the end to help clean up around 5:00 pm
