National Chemistry Week may be different this time around but that can't stop us from celebrating chemistry's biggest holiday! This is a great time to showcase the wonders of Chemistry! Celebrate National Chemistry week with OC American Chemical Society!!! We are giving away free self-inflating balloons!!
Do this chemistry experiment with OCACS and you'll get to see the fun side of science, too. It could serve as a nice break from your rigorous studies and remind you again of why you're taking that p-chem/o-chem/physics/anatomy/calc/thatreallyhardclass to push your spirits up if you need it.
If you would like to order a balloon for a little scientist here is the link: bit.ly/ncw20
Here is a link to the video I made that explains the chemical reaction inside a self-inflating balloon: https://www.instagram.com/p/CGvuTNFlZpV/
