ChemFest, a celebration of National Chemistry Week, is presented by Ashland Inc.
Great Chemistry is Everywhere!
Chemistry is not limited to beakers and laboratories, it is all around us! The more we learn about chemistry, the more we learn about our world.
Discover everyday uses for chemistry with dozens of hands-on exhibits and demonstrations presented by local companies, colleges, and universities. Create fruit batteries, UV active bracelets and homemade invisible ink. Experiment with fluorescence, phosphorescence, chemiluminescence, and so much more! Plus, have a chance to interact with professionals who are working in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
ChemFest is a catalyst for fun and learning, so bring the whole family and discover how chemistry is cool!
On Friday, high school students are invited to ChemFest Career Café, a fast-paced introduction to careers in an informal setting. They can check out demos, enjoy café-style beverages, and chat with industry professionals. Limited capacity, pre-registration required. Call 412.237.3400, then press 7.
The Pittsburgh Section's National Chemistry Week activities are presented in partnership with the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh, the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh, the PPG Industries Foundation, the PPG Science Education Council, Bayer Corporation, and Carnegie Science Center.
