A Chemist’s Number One Tool

Have you ever wondered what makes the colors in fireworks?  Are you curious about how crystals are formed or how copper is recycled?  The answers to these and many other important questions can be determined using one very special tool – the periodic table.  No chemist can be without one.  In this class, we will create atomic models, discover elements of the periodic table through games, create a new mythical element called “beanium”, grow a crystal, and more.  If careers in health care, engineering, or biotechnology interest you, join us to discover why chemistry is called “the central science”.  Did we mention that it’s FUN?!
