Earth's Atmosphere and Beyond!
Chemistry Open House and Science Exploratorium will be held on November 8, 2003 beginning at 9:45am in the foyer of the old part of the main Chemistry Building by the 3 round brick fountains, called the H2O fountains. (This is not the Heldenfels building). Here is another CAMPUS MAP showing parking, our building and the Sbisa Dining Hall. An All-You-Can-Eat Lunch Buffet is available at Sbisa Dining Hall for the special price of $5.95 with $1 off coupon obtained at the Welcome Table - thanks to TAMU Food Service.

You will also get a copy when you arrive at the Open House.

Start your adventures by checking in at the Welcome Table and getting your bag of chemistry goodies.
Here is the Proposed Handout. Two Chemistry Road Shows, featuring fires, explosions, weird polymers, super cold materials and other things will be in Room 100 of the main Chemistry building at 10am and 2pm.
Door prizes will be given out at both shows.

Other activities at Chemistry Open House and Science Exploratorium will be underway between 11am and 2pm.
They will include lots of hands-on and computer activities, guided lab tours, and demonstrations. Departments involved are Chemistry (of course), Physics (a great new addition), Engineering, Meteorology and others.
