AT 6:30 pm on Tuesday, November 16th, the SCA hosted its first annual Potluck Dinner. Students and faculty each brought in a dish to share with the other diners. Foods ranged from chocolate cake to lasagna. While the food was quite scrumptious, the event was also a wonderful opportunity for the chemistry faculty and students to bond. It was a great time! Below are photos from the dinner:
Todd is planning a physics trip! Below are all the details in case you didn’t get the other email sent out:
Physics Club is taking a trip to Horiba in Edison, NJ. This is happening on Wednesday, November 17th. We will meet around 12:30pm and leave at 1pm. We estimate to be back by 5:30 at latest. Horiba is a forensic lab and spectroscpy/spectrometery lab. We will get a tour of the facility and what they have to offer.
-Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday Novemeber 10 so we can get a feel to how many people are going as we have to drive there.
There will be a student-faculty potluck dinner on November 16th in room 121 at 6PM. Originally it was scheduled for November 23, but due to the fact that many students will be going home Tuesday night for break, we moved it to the week before. Email us at email@example.com if you are attending! There is a food sign up in the chemistry computer lab and we want everyone attending to bring something for the potluck!
On Saturday, October 9th, the SCA participated in TCNJ’s annual Community Fest. From 10 to 2 pm, children and adults of all ages mixed hydrogen peroxide with soap, food coloring, and yeast, to create “elephant toothpaste” (Dr. O’Connor’s idea). The children especially had a good time trying out the “mad scientist” role, and a few even stated that they hope to be a chemist one day. Great job, SCA!

On September 8, 2010, The College of New Jersey hosted its semi-annual activities fair. SCA was there, promoting the club and signing up prospective members. Manny, Marisa, and Todd (pictured above) smile for the camera while manning the SCA table.
