2016 Chemistry Reunion

The Chemistry Reunion Weekend


The first UK Chemistry Reunion was held on October 14-16, 2016.  The initial event of the weekend was the annual Lyle Dawson lecture presented by Prof. Seth Marder of Georgia Institute of Technology on “The Design of Third-Order Nonlinear Optical Materials.”  Following this well-attended presentation and a reception in the new Don and Cathy Jacobs Science Building (JSB), an Open House of the JSB made it possible for visitors to view our state-of-the-art science teaching facilities.  In addition to tours of the new JSB, the evening featured:

  • The Reaction Attraction with entertaining and spectacular chemistry demonstrations by Anne-Frances Miller, Jack Selegue, and Erin Peters
  • Demonstrations of scientific glassblowing by Jeff Babbitt
  • A description of the “Spirits Chemistry” course offered by Bert Lynn
  • A crime scene, based on the “Forensic Science on Television” course taught by Mark Lovell
  • The Chemistry in Comics collection of Jack Selegue and Jim Holler
