Just wanted to see if anyone else was planning on celebrating Mole Day on October 23, 2012 (next Tuesday) at 6:02 AM or PM.
Also, any ideas for cool activities, labs, or demos to check out the mole with chemistry students?
Mole Day is an awesome way to foster interest for chemistry. I have found some interesting websites that have ideas for activities, demonstrations and links as well Hope you find them useful.
These Mole Day activities are interesting! I will have to pick something to use tomorrow! What clever ways to spark interest in chemistry!
The activities coordinator at our school always does activities for Pi Day for math. I believe this would be a great activity for our middle school. Mole Day is a great precursor for High School Chemistry. I don't ever remember learning about this at all when I was in school at least not until I was in High school. I will be posting to keep everyone up to date on my event progress.
When I taught chemistry we celebrated mole day by students bringing in materials and making a stuff mole which they then decorated and made it their own. One was an Eistein mole, we had a baseball mole and so forth.
Here is a pattern for the mole.
Students loved decorating their moles and we would show them off. Kids really got into it.
Just a fun idea for chemistry.
