K-12 Science 2 Schools Traveling Science Programs: Adventures in Chemistry and Physics

Program Title:
Adventures in Chemistry and Physics
Eastman Kodak Company & The Rochester Technician Affiliate Group of the American Chemical Society Rochester, NY, United States
Geographical Area:
Mainly New York State but additional locations upon arrangement. Please call for details.
General Description:
The goal of the program is to encourage students to be curious about science, entertain new ideas, and try experimenting. The program stresses the importance of reading, writing, and mathematics in the study of science. Safety issues are strongly emphasized. The program can be adapted to appeal to any age group, and the presentation can be designed to cover specific topics in chemistry and physics. In addition, several workshops are conducted each year to help educators with presenting scientific concepts in novel ways.

We currently offer demonstration programs that are purely entertaining or the program can be designed to meet current curriculum needs. Musical programs (demonstrations choreographed to music) are also offered. Musical demonstrations require extensive preparation and clean up time. Hands-on experiments can be arranged for groups of up to 20 people. All demonstrations are age appropriate. Please allow a minimum of one hour for demonstration time. Longer demonstrations can be accommodated depending on your needs. Merit badge programs are available and can be arranged through Deb Janes. Workshops are offered for educators. These can take many forms from how to set up and perform your own demonstrations to learning novel ways to present scientific concepts. Workshops are available for groups of up to thirty-five people.
