Do you ever wonder about the science behind the making of your favorite libation? Or how about the process that is used to make your favorite fragrance? And what about all the plastic we use in our daily lives? If so, your queries can all be answered through chemistry and this course will focus on the magical chemical processes behind the making of beer and wine, the production of food and artificial flavors and the generation of plastics.

Come join us to learn how to think like chemists as we discuss these topics and any others you might have in mind!

Instructors Ellen Aguilera and Elizabth Meucci are graduate students working towards their Ph.D. in organic chemistry. They share a passion for science and look forward to sharing their “magic tricks” with you! This study group for those 50 and over will meet on Tuesdays, 5:30-7 p.m., from October 9 through November 27
