Women+ in Chemistry hosted a table for an activity called Pipet Art, which teaches participants about 96-well plates and how to use dropper pipets while creating a unique suncatcher to take home with them. This activity was developed by the Bay Area non-profit Teach Biotech. The supplies were provided to WiC+ for the South Side Science Festival via generous donations by Corning.
Over 10 WiC+ members volunteered throughout the day and we had a very popular table with children. We ended up running out of supplies early in the afternoon, forcing us to close the table earlier than planned. That means around 175 people participated in our table activity!
We received great comments from the kids and their parents, and are looking forward to participating in next year’s S3F!
