August is Chemistry Month!

Have you ever wondered what you had in common with the stars above? This August you can find out what we have in common with fizzy soda, cars, and star systems. Chemistry makes up all matter, from the elements on the periodic table to the molecues that form the galaxy. Molecules, particles, elements, and chemical reactions make up everyday life here and beyond. We'll also take a look at the chemists who discovered and made our modern world possible.
