Chemical Demonstrations by Undergraduates for Outreach:
Students are invited to present their favorite chemical demonstrations that are appropriate for presentation in an elementary, middle or high school setting. All demonstrations to be presented must be described in the submitted abstract so that they can be evaluated for safety and to prevent repetition. Presenters will be requested to provide handouts detailing preparation for the demonstration, any safety issues and proper waste disposal. The purpose of this symposium is to encourage outreach programs to elementary through high schools. There will be no fume hood or running water available for the demonstrations. The symposium will provide interested students with ideas and descriptions for new demonstrations.
