Attend the 31st Annual Faraday Lecture “Science You Can See (and Hear!)” sponsored by the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh and the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, PA – November 9, 2018 – The annual Faraday Lecture, an entertaining and educational demonstration of chemistry, will take place November 13-14, 2018 at Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall.
The lecture is free and open to the public on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:00 pm. The other two time slots, Nov 13 at 11:00 am and Nov 14 at 10:15 am, are reserved for high school and middle school students.

The demonstrations will be in two general areas –electromagnetic induction and sound. Plus, audience volunteers will participate in a number of the demonstrations.
The Faraday Lecture is sponsored by Pittcon’s comprising societies, the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP) and the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP). Both societies are non-profit organizations dedicated to furthering science education in the Western Pennsylvania region.
Pittcon, together with the SACP and SSP donate more than one million dollars each year to provide financial and administrative support for various science outreach activities, including science equipment grants, research grants, scholarships and internships for students, awards to teachers and professors, and grants to public science center, libraries and museums. The annual Faraday Lecture is one of these initiatives.
