Chemistry students, instructor special guests at Live Oak Public Library

NFCC Chemistry Department Participates in Suwannee County Library Youth Department's Summer Program

MADISON, FL (July 22, 2014) – A five-member team of chemistry students from North Florida Community College and instructor Francis Agama showcased innovative chemistry demos at the Live Oak Public Library in Live Oak, Fla. on July 3 during the Library’s “Fizz, Boom, Read!” program. The program was organized by the Suwannee County Library Youth Department and coordinated by Ivory Jackson. It included a variety of science activities for children ages 5-16.

“It was a great learning experience for me as a student, as well as for the kids attending the chemistry demo,” said NFCC Tia Jackson. “My fellow students and I had a great time preparing and presenting the demos for the kids!”

Other participating NFCC students were equally impressed with the experience.

“I really enjoyed visiting the Live Oak library and doing the science experiments,” said Hannah Godwin. “I learned a lot and enjoyed seeing the children learn about science.”

“I really enjoyed watching the kids get excited to learn more about chemistry,” said Jacob Bunting. “This trip was a great opportunity, and I’m glad I attended.”

“It was nice to be able to come up with an experiment for the children,” said Shannon Dennis. “To get the children excited about science and asking how something works was very rewarding.”

Some of the experiments led by the NFCC students included iodine clock reaction, elephant’s toothpaste demo, density column (polar/nonpolar), styrofoam in organic solvent, Briggs-Rauscher reaction, secret messaging on thick paper by burning potassium nitrate and flame tests for metallic salts.

According to Agama, the college students participating in the presentation enjoyed teaching the children just as much as the children enjoyed the chemistry presentation and experiments. “The event was profoundly exciting,” said Agama.
