The Minnesota Local Section of the American Chemical Society and the Mommy Chemists are pleased to announce our upcoming event:

Chemistry with Kids 

An event specially put on for adults who are also chemists to share their love of chemistry with their children while networking with other moms, dads, and professionals in chemistry!

Enjoy a fun filled afternoon with your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, or any other children in your life. The event with give both children and adults the chance to experience chemistry on both the micro and macro scale. The afternoon will have many fun and safe emos and activities your children can do on their own or with some help. There will be kids as atoms, SLIME, magic sand, chemistry art projects, a pool of oobleck, snow in September, and much more!
