Hands-on science experiments for children are among the many activities planned for area residents during this year’s celebration of National Chemistry Week, Oct. 16-22. This year’s theme is “Solving Mysteries through Chemistry.” The annual event is an outreach program hosted by the Santa Clara Valley section of the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific society.

This year’s celebration will kick-off on Saturday October 15th, 10 am to 1 pm at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose (150 E. San Fernando St.) with a day of hands-on science activities for elementary-school children and their parents. Area chemists will supervise and explain the importance of each activity. The Chemistry Wheel of Fortune will be spinning for all children to win a prize. Children will make colorful slime in the slime lab, experiment with boo bubbles and explore the fascinating and varied chemistry of fibers, forensics and more.
