BLINDING THEM WITH SCIENCE!

by Vinnie DePalma, staff writer

The FM Chemistry Club, organized in the Spring semester of 2013, is trying to organize trips to local elementary schools to perform science demonstrations.

Laurie Lazinski, club advisor, says the club is hoping to reach out to the youth in communities and bring interest to the field of science by performing demonstrations. The club is also looking for ideas on field trips and associating themselves with a charity to begin fundraising efforts during the fall semester of 2013.

On March 21, the club visited the Park Terrace Science Fair and performed demonstrations with students in the elementary program. The students made bouncy balls and blew up balloons with carbon dioxide gas released from a chemical reaction.
