Brown teaches chemistry toAlliance youth
Nicole Brown of Twinsburg was a member of the CHE 115 class who recently taught chemistry to Alliance Middle School and Marlington Middle School students.
Thanks to Dr. Sheryl Mason's organic and biochemistry for nursing class at the University of Mount Union, higher level scientific principles were taught to elementary students using engaging hands-on experiments. Mason, assistant professor of chemistry at Mount Union, told her students to not only explain the basics of the demo, but also come up with applications to medicine and health in the human body.
One presentation was the growling gummy bear experiment. It consisted of burning sugar with potassium chlorate, setting the gummy bear into flames, thus creating the "growling" name.
That experiment was simply one of the numerous experiments presented by the Mount Union students. Others included: Taking the iron out of cereal, neutralizing acids and bases, and using "Glow-germ" lotion to show the importance of washing your hands with soap and using a chemical reaction between two salts.
