This is the 25th anniversary of National Chemistry Week, and the California Section of the ACS has a wonderful 15-year tradition of outreach in local middle schools with Family Science Night. Award-winning science department chair Akemi Hamai is ready to welcome them back.
This will be a night of chemistry excitement, with music by the Scientific Jam, a colorful stage show; liquid nitrogen ice cream; and a dozen hands-on activities for students and their families.
This year’s theme is Nanotechnology, so they will include demonstrations and displays about the different scales of matter and the many uses of nanoparticles in technology and medicine. Your suggestions are welcome, and you can check out some possible activities here.
