Students from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry's Department of Chemistry will draw back the curtain to reveal the chemistry behind scenes of movies and television shows.
"Behind the Scenes with Chemistry" will be held 10:23 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday Oct. 23 at East Syracuse-Minoa High School. The day will be filled with hands-on activities and demonstrations for all ages.
"Behind the Scenes with Chemistry" is part of National Chemistry Week Celebration and also falls on Mole Day, which commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry, making Oct. 23 - or 10/23 - a special day in the world of chemistry. Hence, as well, the unusual start time for the event.
