On Tuesday, April 18, chemistry and biochemistry majors in the Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (ACS) traveled to Windermere Boulevard Elementary School in Amherst to conduct hands-on science experiments with fourth grade students.  Trevor Tumiel ’17, Ben Russ ’19, Anthony Berardi ’19, Filippo Gentile ’19, Ben Swanson ’17 and Gary Johal ’18 taught students about crystallization, density and batteries. The fourth graders made their own borax crystals, lava lamps and lit up an LED with a home-made battery!
