GMU Chemistry Workshops

Event Details

The George Mason University Chemistry Club developed a workshop for scouts to visit their Chem Labs on campus, and to experience the world of chemistry with a number of interactive activities! 

This event will take place at Exploratory Hall, George Mason University in Fairfax, VA. 


Event Description
The STEM Program consists of 2 hour sessions, and welcomes all girl and boy youth from grades 2-5. The program will begin in the Periodic Table Lobby of Exploratory Hall at GMU and end in the Chem Labs of Planetary Hall. 

GMU's Chemistry Club will open with a safety brief, then conduct two exciting chemistry demonstrations, followed by three interactive activities! Come join us! All youth will receive a lab coat from GMU. There is a fee of $15/youth to cover the cost of materials. 
 

What to Bring:

  • Wear close-toed shoes
  • Hairtie for long hair
  • Safety goggles (if you have them - we will have extras too!

Uniform:

  • Youth may wear Class A/B uniforms (and yes, STEM Scouts can wear their Lab Coats!) but this is not necessary. 
  • GMU is donating lab coats for all registered youth!


Can youth other than Scouts participate: Yes, this program is great for boy and girl youth from 2nd - 5th grade. Scouts, non Scouts, same-age siblings and friends are welcome to participate and should register for their grade appropriate sessions. Please contact stem@ncacbsa.org if you have any questions.
