Chemistry Club plans 'A Night of Explosions'

October  17, 2012

On Thursday, Oct. 25, from 6:30-8 p.m. Augustana College’s Chemistry Club will celebrate National Chemistry Week by hosting an event titled “A Night of Explosions, Color Changes … and Toothpaste?” The free event will be held in the Hanson Hall of Science (726 35th St.), Room 102.

Augustana chemistry students, along with members of the faculty, will perform demonstrations using their knowledge of chemistry. All ages are welcome.

The Augustana Chapter of the American Chemical Society seeks to provide students with a chance to participate in fun and educational activities that promote an interest in chemistry. The organization gives students and faculty an opportunity to work and learn together in a fun, relaxed environment.

Augustana College offers a major and minor in chemistry, a major and minor in biochemistry, and a major for teaching chemistry. The college’s chemistry program is nationally accredited by the American Chemical Society.
