Chemistry Day at the Museum celebrates 30 years! Members of the Kalamazoo Section of the American Chemical Society and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum have collaborated to show visitors how chemistry is used on a daily basis. There are yearly favorites like slime, liquid nitrogen, and chemiluminescence that have become a tradition. Each year, a few new ones are added to go along with the National Chemistry Week theme. National Chemistry Week, celebrated throughout the United States, serves to inform the public, starting with youth, that chemicals are essential in all areas of our lives and that chemistry as a scientific discipline can lead to a large variety of useful and challenging careers.
