Once again, on STEM day at the state fair, we taught everyone how cool chemistry is! From learning about ocean acidification to making a hidden message (or some slime!) everyone had a good time. Thanks to Market Science (https://marketsci.org/) for helping us spread our love of chemistry!
Daley, R.A.; Topczewski, J.J. Org. Biomol. Chem. 2019, 17, 1709-1713.
We went to Linden Hills to share our love of chemistry with a new farmers market! We told them about climate change and how that affects water pH, as well as ocean life, and we showed them how to write secret messages using pH indicators. As always, making slime was DEFINITELY a crowd favorite. To learn more about Market Science, visit their website https://marketsci.org/
We got a new post-doc! We're excited to welcome Dr. Sanjay Maity to the lab. He comes to us from the Ghorai lab at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal. Looking forward to doing cool chemistry with you!
