Celebrate National Chemistry Week with us at ChemFest! Chemistry is not limited to beakers and laboratories; it is all around us! See how chemistry is used in the workplace and in everyday life with engaging activities supervised by chemists from local businesses and universities.

Activities will include:

  • Unleash your inner mad scientist and conduct flame tests and hydrophobic sand experiments
  • Get gooey with an oobleck activity
  • Create your own etch-a-sketch
  • Explore the elements with an interactive periodic table
  • Build molecules with the Happy Atoms kit
