Local high school students were invited to celebrate National Chemistry Week as the Chemistry Department at Belmont University hosted Belmont High School Chemistry Day 2016 on October 21. A total of 23 high school students from five metro area high schools participated.
During Chemistry Day, Belmont students performed demonstrations and lead participants in a variety of hands-on activities showing how chemistry is used in the real world. The Belmont students that participated included Bailey Rose, Londyn Eberhardt, Anna Margaret McDonnell, Hannah Burnette, Hope Kramer, Nick Orji, John Longenecker and Hannah Peterson representing chemistry, biochemistry & molecular biology, and neuroscience. Drs. Rachel Rigsby and Dr. Alison Parker, chemistry, gave the students tours of the chemistry labs. Participants also had lunch in Belmont’s Harrington Place Dining and were given a campus tour.
