YCC Aiken Earth Day: Dive into Marine Chemistry

YCC represented ACS at Earth Day Aiken with the theme Dive into Marine Chemistry.

Visitors of all ages stopped at the booth to answer ocean trivia questions, learn about the buoyancy of objects in salt water compared to fresh water, wear blubber gloves to learn how whales stay warm, and how increased carbon dioxide affects our oceans by testing the pH of salt water with red cabbage indicator.

There was a name that beta fish contest and the winner of the contest was announced on Facebook.

YCC also asked community members and students how they celebrate Earth Day and compiled the answers in a video that was posted to Facebook.
