Adventures in Chemistry and Physics

The goal of the program is to encourage students to be curious about science, entertain new ideas, and try experimenting.  This program stresses the importance of reading, writing, and mathematics in the study of science. 


These science presentations are formulated to deliver grade appropriate information that is aligned with educational curriculum.  Deborah Janes and Timothy Wilson manage and implement the entire program through the Rochester Section of the American Chemical Society.
