Another Successful Show! Print E-mail

Once again, it was an evening of “Magic”…of Molecules!


I would like to extend my thanks and congratulations on a job well done to all those who contributed to a highly successful presentation of the ‘Magic Of Molecules’ on Saturday, Oct. 19th. We offered the show to a large and enthusiastic crowd in BSB 147, and were most ably supported by: a large crew of Chemistry and Chemical Biology students; Heather Zelisko, the preparer of all of our demonstrations; Leah Allan, coordinating online registration; Nancy McKenzie, coordinating the “front-of-house” volunteers; and my co-presenters David Brock and Jose Moran-Mirabal.


The show this year was dedicated to our friend and colleague Dr. Brian McCarry (1946-2013), who was an enthusiastic proponent of the show and who had co-presented the show numerous times in previous years.


The show was received with tremendous enthusiasm and we heard a great deal of positive feedback afterwards.


I extend grateful thanks to our sponsors, The Chemical Institute of Canada (Hamilton Section), and the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology outreach program.

Well done!
