Dr. Lenea Stocker implemented the first annual “Kids and Chemistry Demonstration Day: Advancing Chemistry Appreciation Using Chemical Demonstrations” in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland on May 23, 2018.
This innovative outreach program was targeted toward elementary school students to foster STEM appreciation at an early age. Students toured the laboratory facilities in the department, engaged in chemistry-themed activities, and watched an engaging chemical demonstrations show performed by Dr. Stocker.
Floating soap bubbles, rainbow flame tests, elephant’s toothpaste, and a liquid nitrogen cloud were a few of the chemical demonstrations that Lenea performed that wowed and captivated the audience.
