By Tourism Industry Partner
OKLAHOMA CITY – The first SMO Holiday of the school year is just around the corner and that means Science Museum Oklahoma is gearing up for Chemistry Day 2011 which will take place November 4th. Chemistry Day is one three official Science Museum Oklahoma holidays and this one is devoted to all things chemistry.
“Chemistry day is a great opportunity for kids (young and old) to learn about chemistry in a hands-on environment,” said Darren Ransley, academic networking coordinator at Science Museum Oklahoma. “When or where else can you mix chemicals, make and send a rocket skyward or even watch a live show about chemistry? Only at Science Museum Oklahoma. We’re the place for chemistry fun”
Chemistry Day 2011 is sure to please the science minded! With Reaction Rockets, Cold Chemistry, and Playing with Polymers to name just a few of the mind twisting experiment stations. Chemistry Day 2011 is sure to excite kids of all ages. Registration is not required, but is encouraged for teachers who would like to book a school group. This Science Museum Oklahoma holiday will last from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and no extra admission is required. All the day’s events and experiments are included with general admission to the museum.
“Most people have holiday celebrations for Halloween and St Patrick's Day. Science Museum Oklahoma has a holiday just for Chemistry,” said Jenn Tylbon, Chaos Coordinator at Science Museum Oklahoma. “It’s our time to highlight some of the most amazing parts of our everyday life.”
