“Stardust Musings and Memories”
You and your students are cordially invited to attend the 32nd annual SACP/SSP Faraday Lecture for students. These lectures/demonstrations are entertaining as well as educational.
This year’s lecture will be presented by David D’Emilio, veteran chemical demonstration expert at the University of Pittsburgh Chemistry Department. Dave will perform a series of engaging and intriguing demonstrations, specifically designed to educate the audience about the transition from the Big Bang, to stars, to stardust, to cosmic dust, …to atoms! Audience volunteers will become part of his rocket launch crews, hydrogen and oxygen balloons will explode to make water, and the connection between stardust and colorful fireworks will be explained using prisms and diffraction gratings.
You’ll be on the edge of your seat watching science in action!
