Greg Phelan, Chemistry Department, visited St. Mary’s School in Cortland on April 26 as part of the National Science Foundation-funded SUNY Cortland Noyce Project. He conducted chemistry experiments with the pre-K class. Twenty-one four- and five-year-olds participated in hands-on experiments to learn about phases of matter, vinegar and baking soda chemistry and cooking. Afterwards, the children “chewed on” the connection between the experiments and everyday life by eating Irish soda bread, which has visible bubbles and cavities.
