Whitney McCrary’s chemistry demonstration was a hit!

Whitney McCrary is a PhD chemist and a New School Montessori parent. Whitney volunteered to speak with Casey Rodriguez’ (9-12) physical science students about her background, schooling and what chemistry jobs could look like. After answering career questions, Whitney discussed chemical reactions and formulas and introduced her “elephant toothpaste”experiment which caused an exciting exothermic reaction when hydrogen peroxide was mixed with yeast. The students loved asking Whitney about some of the potential dangers and fun of chemistry!
