Now that National Chemistry Week has come and gone, I wanted to give a recap on what all we did to celebrate. On Monday we gave out periodic table cookies in the Georgia Tech Student Center. Everyone that came up to us was pretty happy about them. They also tasted fantastic- I can confirm that. […]
Yesterday we had dinner with Georgia Tech’s director of freshman chemistry labs, Dr. Evans. (He’s the one who looks like a slightly older college student, fourth from the left). We had a great time at Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand and talked about all kinds of things like what classes to take when, home ownership, Halloween, […]
Yesterday, Saturday September 19, SAACS volunteered with the local ACS chapter and JJ’s Playhouse to put on the event Chemistry Mixology. 3 students from Georgia Tech, along with several from Mercer University (the university hosting this event) got together to tell younger kids what exactly chemists do. Jennifer Knaack presented and introduced the experiments while […]
