West Windsor, N.J. -- 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.
