Chemistry Students Bring Science Lab to Local Children

A local library was transformed into a science lab when Clemson chemistry students and area children created slime, dissolved Styrofoam and made glassware disappear as part of the Fun With Chemistry outreach event. “Our students are trying to get the community interested in chemistry — and science in general — by showing them a few really cool demonstrations,” says Leah Casabianca, an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry.
