Why does chemistry matter? (pun intended!)

Join us at Café Sci Boston as we talk with Cheryl Lavoie from Simmons College about how and why chemistry matters – to everyone! Highlights to include the joys of teaching chemistry, measuring radioactivity in our everyday lives, and eating bananas. We'll do a quick case study of the Japanese nuclear power plant crisis, too.

In preparation for the talk, feel free to review this illustration from the web comic xkcd.com of a radiation dose chart: http://xkcd.com/radiation/ This co-hosted NOVA and COPUS event is part of the International Year of Chemistry 2011 (IYC2011) which is a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry

Join Café Sci on Wednesday for great food, drinks, and conversation.
