  • UV Bracelets-student learn about UV Rays and how it affects things around us.
  • Demonstration of how Physical Vapor Deposition works by sputtering gold onto pennies
  • Fundamental concepts of what acids and bases are and where we can find them in everyday life outside of a chemistry lab. Experiment: Obtained a 2 liter of sprite and allowed to go flat by leaving it open. Solid magnesium was added and allowed to sit for a few seconds. As the magnesium reacted with the citric acid in the soda, a subsequent reaction lead to reformation of carbonic acid. In other words, the sprite is no longer flat.

  • Dr. Lawrence explained the basics of Organic Chemistry and Polymers and what Styrofoam is and how it degrades. Students also learned how a Schlenk line/manifold works and how to use a Rotary Evaporator.
  • Making Gummy Capusules
