Chemistry Club ends semester with a bang!

December 10, 2014

The Chemistry Club held its 3rd annual Liquid Nitrogen Ping Pong event in the Engineering High Bay today.

Chemistry Club members under the direction of Dr. Mark Benvenuto and Meghann Murray pour liquid nitrogen into a 2-litre bottle and place it in a garbage can with water.  Approximately 1,500 ping pong balls are poured on top.

Students, faculty and staff who purchase cups, place them strategically on the floor and caught a ping pong ball won a prize.

The event is a fundraiser to offset the cost of students attending the annual conference of the American Chemical Society.
