Cal ACS at the Bay Area Science Festival - 05 Nov 2016

The California Section returned to the Bay Area Science Festival for Discovery Days at AT&T Park on Saturday 05 November 2016 and six hours of non-stop fun as hundreds of visitors learned about aroma compounds in plants and tried their hands at building molecular models. Maher Kalaji was there early to help me set up, and we were soon joined by Al Verstuyft and Charlie Gluchowski, plus students from the College of Alameda, Las Positas Community College, and from the Chemistry and Biochemistry Student Association at San Francisco State University.  Special thanks to California Section Chair-Elect Margareta Séquin for preparing the display of plant materials and essential oils.
