Chemistry and Biochemistry News

This fall, the Stevenson Softball Team started a new program, Random Acts of Kindness (RAK), to thank faculty and staff for positively impacting the team members' careers at Stevenson.  Tiffany Kahl, Biochemistry senior and captain of the Softball Team, nominated Department Chair, Dr. Ellen Roskes, to receive an RAK. Some members of the Softball Team came to Dr. Roskes' home to help out by raking leaves and painting. Their help was most appreciated and everyone had a good time!  

Junior chemistry major Blake Ford (left) traveled to Portland, Oregon for the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF) Conference.  Blake presented the results of his summer research with SU faculty member, Dr. Keith Johnson (right), which focused on predicting oyster reef restoration success from juvenile oyster growth in the Chesapeake Bay....Click here to read more.

This year, the Maryland STEM Festival included a weeklong series of dynamic events and activities across the state of Maryland to share the excitement of science.  As part of this initiative, the American Chemical Society Club hosted an encore performance of the Chemistry Magic Show. Young students from across the state of Maryland were able to attend the event which we hope to spark their interest in science. Students were able to participate in hands-on demonstrations and experience the fun side of chemistry!  

The American Chemical Society Club hosted its Annual Chemistry Magic Show!  This exciting fall event demonstrates the fun and interesting experiments students can do using basic chemistry! Some classic Magic Show experiments such as Burning Money, Fun with Dry Ice, and the Cold Light of Luminol were performed by sophomore, junior and senior science majors.  This year also incorporated a new experiment performed by senior Chemistry major, Heather Drake.  Spring Blossoms demonstrated LeChatlier’s principle using different acid and base indicators.  The Magic Show was a huge success, filling up Knott Hall 23 yet again!

The School of the Sciences hosted an Information Session about applying and succeeding in graduate school.  The session featured faculty members from the School of the Sciences, Dr. Will Harrell (Chemistry), Dr. Jeremy Burkett (Chemistry), Dr. Mark Branson (Mathematics) and Dr. Mark Norris (Biology).  Chemistry senior Kristen Cassetta thought that all of the panelists were extremely helpful.  They each had different and unique experiences in graduate school and their advice regarding networking with professors before entering graduate school was extremely beneficial.
