Friday, June 23rd, 2017 - The Chemistry & Biochemistry Club welcomes the Genius Project from Rancho Cucamonga. We hosted about 80 students from K-12th grade, showed them chemistry demonstrations, talked about chemistry and answered questions about college. We also raffled t-shirts and gave away chemsitry posters!
