|Science Saturday - Mastering Alchemy|
Event Type: Youth Services Program|
Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Time: 11:30 AM
Back before anyone understood atoms and molecular structure, there were people called alchemists. Their special talent was said to be the ability to turn one element into another, such as lead into gold. Today we understand that behind the mystery and magic of alchemy was something that we now call chemistry. Today's alchemists will learn how to copperplate steel paperclips by dissolving the copper from pennies and transferring it to the paperclips, plus a few more experiments involving chemical reactions.
