The Misericordia University College of Arts and Sciences is hosting "Celebrate Earth Day with Science at Misericordia," a fun-filled afternoon for families on Saturday, April 27 from 1-3 p.m. in the Catherine Evans McGowan Room of the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library.
The free program is designed for children ages 3-12, and will celebrate Earth Week with a variety of hands-on science activities organized by Misericordia University's chemistry club, the Dead Alchemists Society, as well as students and faculty in the areas of biology, physics, chemistry and Earth sciences.
The activities will include making a homemade water filter, learning how paper is recycled, planting seeds and a project that involves making rock salt solutions and using them to simulate the effects of rainwater run-off on the environment. Children will be encouraged to complete all of the activities and will receive a keepsake at the event. For additional information, please contact event coordinator Anna Fedor, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, at 570-674-6769 or email@example.com.
"Celebrate Earth Day with Science at Misericordia" is being held in collaboration with the groundbreaking on April 17 for the new Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Science Center. The new science center will offer laboratories and collaborative learning spaces for advanced teaching and research for Misericordia's students and faculty. The design also will provide a number of dedicated laboratories for specific areas of study across the sciences, including organic chemistry, ecology, gross anatomy, microbiology and molecular biology, as well as a 4,000 square-foot outdoor rain garden.
Students in the Dead Alchemist Society at Misericordia University are building on their annual Halloween-themed 'Things that Go Boom in the Night!' event by offering the free program, 'Celebrate Earth Day with Science at Misericordia,' on Saturday, April 27 from 1-3 p.m. in the Catherine Evans McGowan Room of the Mary Kintz Bevevino Library.
