In this edition of Virtual LIVE@Frost Science, we’re celebrating Pride in STEM Day with Chemical Kim, a Chemistry Professor at Florida SouthWestern State College and motivational science education speaker. Chemical Kim will take us on a scientific whimsical journey through the chemical elements on the periodic table.
Learn the elements and their discovery through song. Join Chemical Kim on a hunt for the chemical elements all throughout the world and watch her safely demonstrate exploding elements, rubberized stinky elements, elements that produce light energy, and much more. Miniaturize yourselves to an ångström and “see” atoms, touch electrons and experience a tickling shock with the wonder of chemistry!
This event is great for all ages, but especially Grades 4 and above.
