Texas A&M Chemistry Road Show coming to the Driscoll Public Library June 30

Dr. Pennington is coming to the Driscoll Public Library for the Chemistry Road Show on Wednesday, June 30.

Texas A&M Chemistry Road Show and the Driscoll Public Library are bringing a program full of fire, smoke, and things that ooze to Devine on Wednesday, June 30in the George S. Woods Community Center.
The Chemistry Road Show is a public service program with two complementary and interlocking goals: to ENTERTAIN and EDUCATE students using chemistry. Most of all, we hope students will remember the excitement and surprise they feel during our demonstrations.
“This will be our first program since reopening to public access,” said Debi DuBose, Library Director for the Driscoll Public Library, “and I think the Chemistry Road Show will be a treat for kids and adults alike. The folks from Texas A&M are bringing a genie that escapes from a bottle, Elephant Toothpaste, and various things that ooze, change, and blow up.”
The presentation promises to be more than just a magic show.
“The presenter is a chemistry professor having fun, and explaining along the way what we’re seeing. There is also a fair amount of audience participation. It’s really a great show,” DuBose stated.
The Road Show program is free and appropriate for ages 6 to 106.
“I think grandparents will enjoy it as much as their grandchildren,” added DuBose.
The program begins at 1 p.m. with doors opening at 12:30 and DuBose suggests that people come early.
“The show starts with a bang, and you don’t want to miss it,” DuBose said.
