SOCORRO, N.M. – The Chemistry Department is ramping up preparations to celebrate National Chemistry Week from October 23 to 27.

National Chemistry week was designated to fall on 10/23 in honor of Avagodro's number of 6.022 x 10^23.

Lopez Chemistry Hall will host an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24, for all campus to attend. Faculty and students are welcome to tour the building and help themselves to a zeptomole of green chili cheese fries. A zeptomole sounds really small, but when it comes to fries, not atoms and molecules, it’s a good size basket.

In addition, throughout the week, the NMT website will post a daily Chemistry quiz each morning. Juliann Ulibarri at the front office will take the first five correct quizzes and award entries with a door prize. Keep an eye on the NMT website for daily quizzes from Monday through Friday.

The department will continue with a large outreach event on Wednesday, Oct. 25. Five area high schools will be visiting campus. Students and teachers will receive a complimentary lunch of French fries (zeptomolar amount), hotdogs and drink.  Participating chemistry/science high schools include Belen, Socorro, Hot Springs, Capitan and the School of Dreams Academy.

The visiting high schoolers will see chemistry demos, chemistry quiz show and prizes, faculty presentations on chemistry careers and admissions/financial aid info booth and campus tour.
