In an effort to reach out to the community and promote the physical sciences, the Chemistry and Biochemistry Club holds an annual "Terrific and Scientific" Chemistry Show, which at its inception provided over 300 local elementary and middle school students, in addition to their family members, an evening of both fun and entertainment. Various topics in chemistry were brought to life as they were performed, while several "mini-demos" in which scientific concepts were explored through hands-on activities and additional instruction from either a college student or a Chemistry Department faculty members
Get involved! This event brings together college students, faculty members, and local elementary school students for activities where scientific knowledge is dispersed to a younger generation. The college students who participate in this event are able to get to know each other and the participating faculty. Most importantly, the younger students are able to see that learning science can be lots of fun!
