MCCC Part of Super Science Saturday
A group of twenty MCCC faculty and students were on hand this spring to participate in Super Science Saturday, an annual outdoor community event presented by the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. Organized by Associate Professor of Chemistry Helen Tanzini, the Mercer group led interactive activities and demonstrations, including making slime, fake snow, dry ice and fog, as well as rainbow chromatography, for approximately 2,000 visitors throughout the day. They were assisted by members of the Trenton section of the American Chemical Society, and faculty and students from Rider and Princeton. More here.
Honors Science Students Present Research
Biology and Chemistry Honors research students were busy this past semester carrying out exciting projects at Rider University. They presented their results in early May before a packed room of fellow science students and faculty members. Chemistry student Adrie Kornasiewicz presented "Synthesis of 2-Vinylpyridine Derivatives for Sulfonamide Research," under the guidance of Dr. Danielle Jacobs; biology student Shelly Djoufack presented "Marmorkrebs Crayfish: A Search For Its Origin," under the guidance of Dr. Phillip L. Lowrey; and chemistry student Ron Russell III, who completed his second project, presented "Give Me Some Sugar: The Synthesis and N-Glycosylation of Pyrroles," under the guidance of Dr. Bruce Burnham.
