Apr 27, 2013 – YCC at Rutgers Day


Volunteers Needed for Rutgers Day!

Rutgers DayThe NJACS Younger Chemists Committee will have a table at the Rutgers Day 2013 festival, presenting interactive, entertaining, and educational activities for all ages focusing on UV.

We will be demoing UV beads to the kids. We welcome you to the volunteer for the whole day or half a day!

If you can participate, please Sign Up so we will have a head count of volunteers.

Children make their own UV detecting bracelet using UV-sensitive beads. When exposed to sunlight these beads take on a dazzling array of colors. With some simple experiments, families also learned how to test the power of UV rays, and how sunscreen protects you from UV over-exposure. This is a great opportunity for families to experience and enjoy science, while building awareness of the dangers of excessive sun exposure and learning how to protect your skin.

NJACS YCC participates annually at Rutgers Day. Everything is free!
