Chemistry Club gives students a chance to practice science

According to the Chemistry Club’s page on Gorilla Engage, Chemistry Club, “…exists in order to provide a place where chemistry students can come together with like-minded students. Chemistry Club allows students an opportunity for networking and advisement from upperclassmen in chemistry.”  

Kinsey Morey, a senior studying chemistry, is President of the Chemistry Club. In past years, the club has been very active and has participated in a number of events on Pitt State’s campus. The Chemistry Club has also hosted their own events that deal with things such as (but not limited to) chemistry-related topics and experiments.  

“Chemistry Club is a club for anyone who is interested in chemistry,” Morey said. “We usually make ice cream with liquid nitrogen and hold a booth at gorilla warmup and other events for incoming students. Some other things we’ve done in the past include midterm/finals week care packages to give out in the oval, putting on ‘magic’ shows for elementary kids using chemistry, and other science games.”  

Any Pittsburg State University student can join the club, regardless of their major. Students only need to attend the club meetings.  

“…We meet once a month to have snacks, sign up for upcoming events, and do an activity,” Morey said. “(Last) fall, we made stress balls with a non-Newtonian fluid…”  

There are a couple of ways that students can go about joining the Chemistry Club.  

“Anyone is welcome to join Chemistry Club,” Morey said. “They can join on Gorilla Engage or just show up to any of the meetings and sign up then. We put posters up all around Heckert-Wells the week before each meeting.”
