ChemFest Celebration

Cost: Free with Admission
Date: Oct 26, 2018 Daily until Oct 27, 2018

Chemistry is Out of This World!

Chemistry is not limited to beakers and laboratories; it is all around us! At ChemFest, see how chemistry is used in the workplace and in everyday life with hands-on activities supervised by chemists from local businesses and universities. It's a mixture of chemistry, exploration, and fun!

Visitors will engage in hands-on activities and see dazzling demonstrations, which might include:

  • Making Alka-Rockets with Bayer representatives.
  • Drawing constellations with glow-in-the-dark markers and other activities involving chemiluminescence, photoluminescence, or fluorescence with the Pittsburgh Section of the American Chemical Society.
  • Building molecules using the Happy Atoms kit, scanning their creations with the Happy Atoms app, and learning about their molecules with Carnegie STEM Girls, along with using the app to complete different challenges.
  • Using easy-to-make spectroscopes to see the range of different colors from various light sources, with representatives of Clarion University.

ChemFest, a celebration of the National Chemistry Week, in partnership with the American Chemical Society.
