Chemistry Fun Day

Investigate the Forensics of Chemistry at Chemistry Fun Day

Saturday, Oct. 22
Noon – 4 p.m.

In celebration of the 29th annual National Chemistry Week, Creative Discovery Museum invites you to investigate the chemistry of forensics during Chemistry Fun Day: “Solving Mysteries Through Chemistry.” We will create some exciting chemical reactions using every day materials, from creating slime to testing PH levels of different liquids. Local chemistry clubs and chemistry classes from Chattanooga-area schools and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) employees will be on hand to assist younger guests with experiments and talk to them about why they love chemistry. National Chemistry Week is a community-based annual event that unites the American Chemical Society with businesses, schools and individuals in communicating the importance of chemistry to our quality of life.

“Chemistry touches every aspect of our lives from the complex reactions that occur in our bodies, to the products we use on a daily basis,” said Karen Dewhirst, Science Manager at Creative Discovery Museum. “Chemistry Fun Day is a unique opportunity to make chemistry fun, approachable, and relevant to children and their parents.”

All activities and materials are included with Museum admission.
