Are you a fan of chemistry demonstrations? Never observed one live before? Premiere chemistry demonstrator Lee Marek, who has appeared more than 30 times on “The David Letterman Show,” will be visiting campus April 13.
Sponsored by the Ozark Local Section of the American Chemical Society, the event will include light refreshments starting at 5:30 p.m. followed by a fun lecture with videos and demonstrations from Marek himself.
“I use what is called the ‘phenomenological’ approach to teaching science—introducing a topic with a demonstration or lab so that students have something concrete on which to focus,” said Marek. “I use demonstrations as motivators to captivate student interest and to focus on the day’s topic.”
What: Demonstrations and lecture form Lee Marek
When: April 13 at 5:30 p.m. for refreshments, lecture begins at 6 p.m.
Where: Temple Hall, Room 002
