Project Abstract/ Summary

ChemFest. 2011 is our local participation in National Chemistry Week intended to celebrate the contributions of the sciences, and, in particular, chemistry, to modern life and society. ChemFest will take place in Aubert Hall in the late afternoon and evening of Wednesday, October 12,2011.

The program consists of an open house for members of the campus community and beyond, including area school teachers and their students. We anticipate well over one hundred attendees. Undergraduate student members of the American Chemical Society UM Student Affiliates will present interactive demonstrations of chemistry at a level understandable to a lay audience.
