The UK Chemistry Department held its annual chemistry demonstration on Oct. 21 in honor of National Chemistry Week. The demonstrations are performed mostly by graduate students. Elementary and Middle school kids attended the show to learn about chemistry and safety in the laboratory. The demonstration included experiments such as "The Dancing Gummy Bear" and the "The Disappearing Rainbow." It also included safety demonstrations to show the kids how important it is to wear safety goggles and personal protective gear in the lab.
