This Week’s Spotlight and Project-Inspiration Theme: National Mole Day
This week’s focus is Mole Day!
October 23rd is National Mole Day and this week's theme! A mole in chemistry is a standard scientific unit for measuring large quantities of small things such as atoms and molecules. The number of units in one mole is 6.02 x 10^23, this number is known as Avogadro's number. The day occurs on October 23rd and typically is celebrated between the hours of 6:02am and 6:02pm because of Avogadro's number.
This week also happens to be National Chemistry Week (October 17th to the 22nd). This yearly event is hosted by the American Chemical Society (ACS) to highlight the importance of chemistry in our everyday lives. The ACS has many different local sections and student chapters all focused on getting elementary and middle school kids excited about chemistry. This year's theme for National Chemistry Week is Reaction Rates, Fast or Slow… Chemistry Makes It Go! Check out their website for different activities and resources posted throughout the week.
You can also check out the ACS website for specific activities for National Mole Day. Some of the activities include a poster project about the size of a mole or making molasses cookies to celebrate the day. What coding creation could you make to celebrate National Mole Day? Whatever you create, don't forget to share it with us!
