Celebrate National Chemistry Week with Experiments at the Rochester Museum & Science Center
ROCHESTER, NY—Visitors explore the positive impacts of chemistry as it relates to energy, with a focus on sustainable resources, with members of the Rochester Section of the American Chemical Society at the Rochester Museum & Science Center (RMSC). The program, celebrating National Chemistry Week, takes place from 12pm to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, October 19 through 20.
In honor of National Chemistry Week, visitors can try fun hands-on experiments and meet local chemists from colleges and universities across Rochester to learn more about the chemistry of "Energy Now and Forever." Visitors see exciting demonstrations by RMSC staff that bang, burst into flames, change color and even make sound. Visitors also learn about how tiny science at a "nano" scale can have big meaning for our future.
Programs are, unless otherwise specified, free with regular Museum admission: $13 adults, $12 seniors and college students with ID, $11 ages 3 to 18, free for children under 3 and RMSC members. Admission to the Alien Worlds and Androids exhibition is also free with regular Museum admission. For group reservations and rates, call 585.697.1942.
