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!

For all of those Star Wars fans out there, read our latest publication, ""It's a (Kinetic) Trap!": Selectively Differentiating Allylic Azide Isomers" in Synpacts! Find it on our Publications page, or at https://www.thieme-connect.de/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/s-0037-1609479
Porter, M. R.; Shaker, R. M.; Calcanas, C.; Topczewski, J. J. J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2018, 140, 1211-1214.
On Saturday, the Topczewski lab once again showed the Midtown Market that chemistry is fun and interesting! Despite the wind, almost 100 people came to learn about ocean acidification, precipitation reactions, catalysis, and how to make slime!
Congratulations to Amy, Mary, and Matt, who all passed their preliminary exams! Now that they're all done with those hoops, here's hoping they get lots of good research done.
Our Chemistry Market Science exhibit was so popular that we got asked back! This time, we went to the Nokomis Farmer's Market. We were so busy though, teaching everyone the joys of chemistry, that we forgot to take pictures. But at least we spread our knowledge and hopefully our love of chemistry.
