The Amazing Chemistry RaceLocal high school and college students who are interested in chemistry can test their knowledge at an upcoming event at SUNY Canton.

The Amazing Chemistry Race will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 18, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Kingston Theater. The event is designed to stimulate interest in the field of chemistry through fun activities, such as a trivia contest and demonstrations.

“This event is the perfect opportunity for students to show off their knowledge by competing with peers in a fun and educational way,” said organizer and SUNY Canton Chemistry Professor Nicole A. Heldt, Ph.D. “We also want to inspire attendees to pursue a career in the chemical sciences.”
