Virtual Chemistry Open House & Science Exploration

To get the community involved!

The Chemistry Open House held as part of National Chemistry Week, an annual event that promotes public awareness of the importance of chemistry in everyday life. It is coordinated by the American Chemical Society (ACS).

The Department of Chemistry takes an active role in community outreach in an effort to positively affect the future of chemical education. We hope students and families will remember the excitement and surprise they feel during our demonstrations.
