It’s your morning stimulant at its most basic.
The South Dakota Tech chapter of the American Chemical Society will celebrate chemistry Friday, Nov. 9, by displaying a molecule of caffeine made out of cookies.
Tech students will display the cookie from 9 a. m. to 3 p. m. in the Surbeck Student Center AB Room. There also will be hundreds of extra cookies for visitors to eat. The chapter will accept donations for the campus food pantry.
Friday’s event is Tech’s contribution to National Chemistry Week. The American Chemical Society’s 189 chapters nationwide are paying tribute to chemistry and its contributions to the advancement of the arts and its significance to improving our everyday lives.
Events across the country will be held at art museums and at chemical companies that specialize in products necessary to produce works of art. There also will be displays in local libraries that illustrate the paper making process, and presentations by speakers on art restoration and preservation. Other events using the theme, “ Celebrating Chemistry and Art,” will include chemical demonstrations, hands- on activities, contests, exhibits, and workshops.
The American Chemical Society is the world’s largest scientific society with a membership of more than 163,000 chemists and chemical engineers. The Society publishes scientific journals and databases, convenes major research conferences, and provides educational, science policy and career programs in chemistry. Its main offices are in Washington, D. C., and Columbus, Ohio.
