Science Club is Germinating

by Terry 5/22/2008 4:26:00 PM

So far every person I have talked too about creating a small ‘Science Club’ has been excited about the idea. I asked a friend’s daughter, Heather, who is eighteen and planning on starting college in the fall, whether she is interested in participating in a Science Club. Her response was an enthusiastic, “yes!” My daughter is pretty excited by the idea too.

So I think I will be creating a local Science Club. I am planning on purchasing all the chemicals and lab equipment for myself, as it is now. I am thinking Science Club members would need only purchase gloves, goggles, notebook and the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments: All Lab, No Lecture (DIY Science). I may ask for a few dollars to replenish stock used in group experiments. It is an evolving idea at the moment.

I also am toying with the idea of staging a ‘Chemistry in Action’ demonstration for the local elementary school at next year’s annual science fair. I am not sure what yet. I thought of making slime to give away to the kids, but do that as part of a grand finale. I thought I could start with a less-than exciting micro-experiment, and then a larger bench experiment, finally ending with massively up-scaled experiment filling a 50 gallon trash can with slime.
