The Chemistry Department's Open Lab Day
Places to Visit
Museum of Paleontology
BYU Royden G. Derrick Planetarium
The Acoustics Research Group currently offers two forms of science outreach to the community: the popular annual acoustics demonstration shows and tours of our research facilities (anechoic and reverberation chambers) for K-12 classes and other groups.
Sounds to Astound:
Bring the family to explore waves, resonance, and decibels! There is a tour of BYU’s anechoic chamber after the show.
Tour BYU’s unique anechoic and reverberation facilities as a school class or other groups.
Open Lab Day
This is a national event sponsored by the ACS (American Chemical Society) called National Lab Day. Local ACS chapters are encouraged to hold an event either the 1st or 2nd weeks in May.
Y-Chem, BYU’s chapter of the American Chemical Society, usually hosts the event annually each spring. The chapter aims to show students fun experiments that will engage them in chemical reactions that can sometimes be hard to understand and expose students to the hands-on side of chemistry. They will not be holding an Open Lab Day in Spring of 2023 but will have events upcoming in the Fall.
For more information, contact Valarie Maker, firstname.lastname@example.org, in the BYU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
For anyone who ever fantasized about life as an astronaut, launching rockets, or exploring Mars, BYU’s Astrofest makes those dreams a reality. The free event includes hands-on activities and physics demonstrations.
This biannual event takes place each spring (typically on a Saturday in May) at the Eyring Science Center.
