What is Mole Day?

Mole Day is designated as October 23 each year to celebrate Avogadro’s Number, approximately 6.02×1023 which defines the number of particles (atoms or molecules) in one mole of substance. It is only a coincidence that Avogadro slightly resembles the animal by the same name.

Chemistry activities are ongoing throughout the Detroit Science Center, presented by American Chemical Society from 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.

Chemistry Demonstrations by University of Detroit Mercy students will be on the Chrysler Science Stage at 12:30 p.m. & 2:30 p.m.

The Detroit Science Center thanks our National Chemistry Week supporters:

and the Aline Underhill Orten Foundation
