On Nov. 2, Associate Professor of Chemistry Brian Northrop visited the Green Street Teaching and Learning Center to lead an engaging chemistry workshop.
Northrop met with students in grades 1-5 who are part of Green Street’s AfterSchool program.
Northrop taught the students how to make their own silicone polymer putty with glue, water, Borax and food coloring. Pictured, GSTLC student Genesis Moreta stirs up her putty.
William Fowler mixes his putty. WIlliam is the son of Erika Franklin Fowler, assistant professor of government.
Darcey Northrop, the daughter of Brian Northrop, mixes the putty with her hands. “The students were delighted with their efforts in learning about viscoelastics and in stirring up some gooey gak,” said Sandra Guze, GSTLC education and program coordinator.
