The event was designed to teach elementary students about the concepts of chemistry and was part of a class project for the course Chemistry 475.
Forty local elementary students and teachers from Winona Bluffview Montessori School visited WSU Feb. 7. Members of the Chemistry 475 course led a tour of the Science Laboratory Center and gave about 30 different demonstrations involving magnets, electrochemistry, acid-base reactions, and change of states. Information regarding how chemists are educated at WSU and chemistry laboratory safety procedures was also shared.
This event was made possible through support from a WSU Foundation Special Projects grant.
