Carus scientists show students uses of chemistry
DEPUE — DePue junior high students learned more about chemistry during National Chemistry Week when Carus Corporation chemists showed them lights, action and explosions with chemistry. About 1,400 students in 10 Illinois Valley area schools were visited with demonstrations.
Carus volunteers created thunder and fog, launched rockets and ignited minds, using materials ranging from Alka-Seltzer to liquid nitrogen during Chemistry Week demonstrations. Carus offers the educational demonstrations to junior high school students as a community service each year in conjunction with the American Chemical Society’s National Chemistry Week.
Young science enthusiasts won’t have to wait until next year’s National Chemistry Week for more hands-on chemistry demonstrations. This spring, Carus will once again host sixth-graders at the annual Carus Corporation Summer Science Camp. The camp, which is part of Carus’ ongoing commitment to education, provides a full week of hands-on educational activities for local children, free of charge.
