The LSU NOBCChE (National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers) and LSU- Chemistry Graduate Student Council recently organized a “Girls Do Chemistry” event for the Louisiana Girl Scouts. Our WHAM students (Allie, Kate, Ellyse, Gianna & Lillian) we’re able to get hands on experience with chemistry experiments and toured the LSU Chemistry Department, including the NMR lab. The goal of the event was to inspire future women scientists. They participated in many experiments including making slime, using sodium alginate and calcium chloride. They also made Dipping Dots using dry ice!
We are now under a winter weather advisory from the National Weather Service and out of an abundance of caution all schools will be closed today. Frozen precipitation is predicted to enter Baton Rouge in the early afternoon and below freezing temperatures are expected to be here by 3 to 4 pm, the prime time for our buses on the road. Please be safe, we will see you tomorrow.
The EBR Foundation in conjunction with several East Baton Rouge Parish schools hosted Tech the Halls. Several WHAM 5th grade robotics students had an engaging, hands-on, and collaborative experience with other elementary schools from across East Baton Rouge Parish. Teams utilized LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 robots to solve a community-oriented issue. Mr. James sponsors the WHAM robotics club for 4th and 5th grade students.
