Thursday Evening November 8, 6-8 pm Friday November 9, 11 am-noon; 1-4 pm For ages 6 and up
Registration is not necessary. Just show up! Explore Chemistry with facilitated activities from from the Explore Science: Let's Do Chemistry Kits
The Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry event at SPI Spot is part of a nationwide festival of educational programs about ways to experiment, explore, and tackle challenges with chemistry.
Chemistry is all around us—it’s in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the medicines we take, and much more. But many people don’t see this field of science as personally relevant or interesting.
Through exciting experiments and engaging conversations, the Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry event will get participants thinking about chemistry connections in their everyday lives, and unlock their confidence to discover, create, and problem-solve with chemistry. Participants can create foggy bubbles with dry ice, solve a colorful mystery, make their own dye from bug parts, and much more. With the right attitude, no challenge is too big for chemistry!
Led by the Museum of Science, Boston, Arizona State University, and the American Chemical Society, the Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry events are part of a nationwide initiative to stimulate interest, a sense of relevance, and feelings of self-efficacy in chemistry among public audiences. The Explore Science: Let’s Do Chemistry kits are developed and distributed by the National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Net). Together NISE Network partners are celebrating chemistry at over 250 museums and institutions across the country. _______________________________________________________________ The National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Network) is a national community of informal educators and scientists dedicated to fostering public awareness, engagement, and understanding of current science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
