Final Chemistry Night is Nov. 3

Many area high school juniors and seniors will perform hands-on chemistry projects during upcoming Chemistry Night at Saint Mary’s University, which will run 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3.

Chemistry Night is an annual event designed to help students explore the discipline of chemistry and appreciate the positive role that chemistry plays in our everyday world.

Each year students solve a challenging but fun chemical problem. Students will work in small teams, using wet chemistry and working with chemical instrumentation in the SMU Department of Chemistry, under the guidance of SMU chemistry majors.

Eight area schools and approximately 50 students are participating this year.
