Wow That's Chemistry!
Each year the ASU Chemistry Club, in conjunction with the local chapter of the American Chemical Society, puts on a chemistry show for the local 6th graders. We attempt to pique their interest in chemistry by showing them how much fun you can have with it.
Here are some pictures from the event.

Many thanks to everyone who helped make this show possible!
