Celebrate National Chemistry Week with the Chemistry Club

The Chemistry Club is excited to announce that this week is our celebration of National Chemistry Week (NCW)! We have plenty of fun chemistry-themed events planned and will do our best to keep you all up to date on any possible changes to our plans. Questions? Email

This week’s events:

Monday: To kick off this year’s theme of “Fast or Slow, Chemistry Makes it Go!”, we will be hosting a demonstration of the iodine clock experiment, complete with a rate determining step! You should be able to check this out on our Instagram around 6:30 p.m. or anytime after.

Tuesday: During the first half of club hours in the Henry Student Center, we will be available to discuss chemistry and the club’s activities, complete with a shocking demonstration.

Wednesday: The club will attend the lecture “Time, Einstein and the Coolest Stuff in the Universe” in SLC 101 by Nobel Laureate William Daniel Phillips, PhD. Those attending must register. It is not every day that you have the chance to attend the lecture of a Nobel prize recipient, so please join! Club members in attendance should email us photographic evidence of their presence at the lecture, and you might just win a special prize.

Thursday: During the first half of club hours in the Henry Student Center, we will be hosting simple trivia on chemical kinetics and awarding those that answer correctly with chemistry-themed prizes.

Friday: Starting around 6 p.m.,we will be in the Chemistry Club lounge holding our Build-a-Mole event! This is your chance to sew together your own customized stuffed animal mole. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

We hope to see you enjoying our events and celebrating National Chemistry Week!
