The department enjoys sharing science with the larger community. Every October 23rd we host a campus wide "Mole Day" celebration. Other activities have included visits to local elementary schools and participation in programs designed to encourage increased participation of women in chemistry.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry participates each summer in the Science for Kids program which is part of the Chester Children's Chorus 5 week summer program. The five weeks of hands-on chemistry experimentation culminate in a science fair.
