Holiday Science Lecture 2015

"A Grain of Salt: Isn't It Ionic?"

Table salt, or sodium chloride, is important to human history and human health - in many ways. In this interactive presentation led by Princeton University Professors Howard Stone and Bonnie Bassler, we will learn about properties of salt that make it so universally useful.

Children will help demonstrate the chemistry of salt, from its solubility to conductivity. Audience participation is a big part of the interactive show, and every child participating receives a free t-shirt.
