Chemistry demonstration shows

Description:

chemThe Demonstration Shows expose children to science, and spark their interest in chemistry through hands-on experience. The Demonstrations also work to illustrate the practicality of modern chemistry. Alpha Chi Sigma is the primary vehicle for chemistry outreach within and outside the university. Chemistry shows are performed annually for K-State's All University Open House. Shows are conducted in conjunction with New Student Services to groups of prospective K-State students. Additionally, chemistry shows are put on at the local mall during the National Chemistry Week.
