Chemical Shamrocks

We are in J-Term right now - a 2 week (optional) mini-semester. Classes meet everyday during the week from 8 am until noon. I visited the chemistry class to take photos for the university FaceBook page. The class is Chemistry in Magic. It was great fun to see them create all their experiments - evidently I missed the best day....where they blew up stuff!

Card time...time to get ready for St. Patrick's Day!
