A Melodious Musichemical Manifestation, a Creighton University chemistry demonstration and performance set to music, will help celebrate the International Year of Chemistry and National Chemistry Week. The event at 7:30 p.m., Nov. 17 in room 120 in the Rigge Science Building on Creighton University’s campus, is free and open to the public.
The biannual show is designed to share the excitement of chemistry through short, unique science demonstrations. During this nationally recognized program, students dress in full costume and perform chemistry demonstrations choreographed to music. It is jointly sponsored by the University’s chemistry department and the Omaha chapter of the American Chemical Society.
Over the last five years, Creighton has ranked in the top 10 percent of American Chemical Society certified bachelor of science graduates in the nation. For the same period, the University averaged 35 chemistry graduates annually, with more than two-thirds of the graduates receiving certified degrees.
