C6365: It's Time for Slime! in Splash Spring 2018 (May. 05 - 06, 2018)
What is slime, and why is it slimy? In this hands-on, interactive class, we'll teach you everything you need to know about the science of slime--from non-Newtonian fluid dynamics to cross-linking chemistry. Join us! We'll make sure you leave the class with some insta-worthy slime!

C5742: Chemistry of Photography in Splash Spring 2017 (Apr. 22 - 23, 2017)
Learn the basics of photography using chemicals! Today, almost every phone has a camera, and every camera today uses electronic technology. But did you know digital cameras only started becoming popular 20 years ago? Before then, photography was done with chemistry. In this class, we'll talk about some of the processes used and then you can make your own chemical photograph using the cyanotype process, which is the origin of the term "blueprint."

P4882: Plastic, the Modern Material in Splash Spring 2016 (Apr. 09 - 10, 2016)
We will briefly discuss the historical origin of plastic and its impact in the world. We will demonstrate examples of early products and have fun demos that students can take part in to make their very own plastic compounds. Furthermore, we will delve into the polymer chemistry involved in these products and discuss their chemical synthesis. Then, we will conclude our presentation by examining the environmental impacts plastic has and its use in the future.
