October 30 at Brookdale

Lincroft, NJ – Brookdale Community College will make chemistry fun with a Halloween themed Chemistry Carnival on Sunday, October 30, to take place in the Navesink rooms of the Warner Student Life Center from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Families with kids of all ages are invited to take part in the hands-on fun. Although the event is free, attendees are asked to bring can of food per person to donate to a local food bank. Parking is most convenient in lot 7.

Now entering its seventh year at Brookdale, the annual event kicks off this year’s American Chemical Society’s week long celebration with this year’s national theme being “Chemistry—Our Health, Our Future!” Kids will learn the simple chemistry behind many products and materials in American homes, participate in hands-on activities and enjoy Halloween chemistry demonstrations.

Local high school and college students will conduct the science demonstrations and provide the participation opportunities. In addition to Brookdale science students, local schools including Monmouth University, West Long Branch; High Tech High School, Lincroft; Freehold High School, Freehold and Ocean Township High School have been invited to participate.

Roseann McCarthy, a chemistry teacher at Ocean Township High School and Lois Lyons, a chemistry teacher at High Technology High School, masterminded the first Carnival seven years ago. “We are thrilled to see the growing interest in what has become a Halloween tradition,” said Eric Goll, Associate Professor–Chemistry, Brookdale Community College.
