"Energy: Now and Forever," was the theme of this year’s National Chemistry Week event hosted by Princeton University and the Princeton section of the American Chemical Society on Friday, November 8. Nearly 650 people attended the “Energy Activities Night” held in the laboratories and atrium at Frick Chemistry Laboratory. Children and adults alike enjoyed several demonstrations and over 25 hands-on activities focused on chemical energy and chemists' ideas about energy for the future. Among the most popular activities were two energy generators – one powered by peddling a bike and the other by hand. Special thanks to Princeton Facilities’ Electrical Engineer, William Evans, who coordinated both activities with the Office of Sustainability.
