Cool Chemistry Show
Join Sheryl Mason, Ph.D., a chemistry and biochemistry assistant professor at the University of Mount Union, and her general chemistry class at Rodman Library in the Children’s Program Room. As part of their college class experience, Mason’s chemistry students will present exciting and cool chemistry demonstrations to children such as ‘Dragon’s Breath’ and ‘Elephant’s Toothpaste’. Children will have fun with the chance of a hands-on opportunity to make slime while thinking like a scientist. This event will take place on Wednesday, April 10, from 6:15-7:00 p.m., with a repeat session offered from 7:15-8:00 p.m.
Mason and her husband, Scott Mason, Ph.D, who also teaches chemistry and biochemistry at UMU, take time each summer to teach science skills to young students at a Mount Union day camp by getting them into a lab setting and helping them think like scientists. The Masons’ hope is to inspire a love of science in children through programs such as these.
The program is open to children of all ages. Limit of 25 participants per session. To reserve a slot or for more information, call the Children’s Department at 330-821-2665, ext. 223.
