Prof. Wes Bernskoetter and two chemical physics concentrators engaged young minds in chemistry at a science conference held at Vartan Gregorian Elementary School in Providence on June 11, 2014.

Prof. Bernskoetter demonstrated through a chemical reaction how chemists “see” gas molecules, which led to discussions on the role CO2 plays in climate change.
Daniel DeCiccio '15 and Layne Frechette '15 sparked interest through electrochemistry—their students split water molecules, made observations, and applied the lab experiment to the real world.
Dan, Layne, and Prof. Bernskoetter would like to thank our laboratory staff, John Geleney and Fred Guerzon, for their help setting up the demos..
