Celebrate All Things Sticky for National Chemistry Week

Posted: Oct 19, 2020

It's that time of year again—National Chemistry Week (NCW) has arrived!

The BYU Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry is celebrating this year’s theme of adhesive chemistry with a special BYU Chemistry Magic Show. Normally, Department faculty host magic shows that are open to the public every evening during NCW, but with this year's COVID-19 restrictions, in-person magic shows are not possible. Thankfully, XRD facility manager Dr. Stacey Smith filmed a special magic show all about sticky things (with an assist from her sons Bruce and Henry), so we can share our distance learning version with you!
