BELLINGHAM - Western Washington University's College of Sciences and Technology continues its exciting Wizards at Western program with WWU Associate Professor of Chemistry Steven Emory's March 8 interactive science presentation, "The Wild, Wacky, Wonderful World of Materials."

The program, second in this year's Wizards series, will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 8, in Science Lecture Hall 150 on the WWU campus. The show is free and open to area school students in grades 5 to 9 and their parents.

Have you ever wondered about the materials chemistry of mood rings, super balls, or even butterflies?  This educational program will explore these questions using a series of dramatic chemical demonstrations combined with scientific explanations. Emory will be assisted by students from WWU's Chemistry Club.  

Emory began teaching at Western in 2001; he received his doctorate in Analytical Chemistry from Indiana University in 1999.

No permit or charge is required to park in (south campus) gravel C lots on weekends.
