Rockville Science Day is intended to provide a friendly environment for students and their parents to participate in some hands on demonstrations and to learn more about how science and engineering are important to our society. There will be more than 70 exhibitors with hands on activities. Additional information about Rockville Science Day can be found on their website (http://rockvillesciencecenter.org/rockville-science-day/).
As part of the celebration of Chemists Celebrate Earth Week, the Chemical Society of Washington, in conjunction with the Chemistry Department at Montgomery College, Rockville Campus will participate in Rockville Science Day once again this year. Rockville Science Day is open to the public and CSW encourages you to attend.
This event will be co-sponsored by the CSW Outreach Committee and the CSW Environmental/Sustainability Committee. Volunteers from CSW will be providing hands on activities for children who attend the event as a part of CSW’s participation in CCED. Volunteers will also hand out copies of the Celebrating Chemistry publication for CCED, and various CCED themed products. If you would like to volunteer for this event, please contact the CSW CCED coordinator, Kim Morehouse (Kim.Morehouse@fda.hhs.gov).
