Enhance your Chemistry Education With Your Students!
Make chemistry come alive to your 5th and 6th grade students through a series of highly visual chemical demonstrations at this exciting program.
Professors Larry Louters, Herb Fynewever and Chad Tatko engage students in several chemical experiments and explain the science behind the demonstrations at a level that upper elementary students understand. Our program offers a great opportunity to blend your classroom chemistry curriculum with a visual translation of these chemical concepts.
This dynamic 75-minute program is free and is offered for eight sessions in May in the Gezon Auditorium at Calvin College. All local school groups and the home school community are invited to attend.
Professor Louters receives Calvin's highest accolade!
Presidential Award for Exemplarary Teacher.
