ChemFest, a celebration of National Chemistry Week, is sponsored by Ashland Inc.
Energy: Now and Forever!
Explore chemistry and energy, and see how sustainable resources affect the quality of life.
Discover everyday uses for chemistry with dozens of hands-on exhibits and demonstrations presented by local companies. Create fruit batteries, UV active bracelets and homemade electromagnets. Experiment with chlorophyll, learn how we use coal for energy, and so much more! Plus, have a chance to interact with professionals who are working in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
ChemFest is a catalyst for fun and learning, so bring the whole family and discover how chemistry is cool!
On Friday, high school students are invited to ChemFest Café, a fast-paced introduction to chemistry careers in an informal setting. They can check out dazzling demos, enjoy café-style beverages, and chat with industry professionals. Limited capacity, pre-registration required. Call 412.237.3400, then press 7.
