Belmont’s Chemistry Department recently celebrated National Chemistry Week with several events across campus. During the “Chemistry Colors our World” convocation, Assistant Professor of Chemistry Education Dr. Danielle Garrett and members of Belmont’s Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS) discussed the chemistry behind tie-dying and guided students in tie dying t-shirts.
During the “Hey! Look at that Awesome Science” convocation, students from Belmont’s National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and SMACS lead demonstrations, explained various science experiments and discussed why things behave as they do. SMACS members also had a fundraiser in the 4th floor atrium of the Janet Ayers Academic Center to celebrate Mole Day with Mole Day Scrabble and Cupcakes.
