NOBCChE Outreach at Marietta High School Science Night

On Thursday, November 1st, the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE) at Emory University attended Marietta High School for their annual Science Night. The event, featuring classroom demos and science fair projects, welcomed volunteers from local universities to share about their STEM opportunities.

The Emory NOBCChE representatives who attended the event spent the evening handing out flyers and engaging with enthusiastic students and parents over some particularly exciting carbon dioxide chemistry. With do-it-yourself lava lamps and bouncing soap bubbles, guests were both entertained and inspired to learn more.
