National Mole Day

Mole Day was first celebrated in 1991 by a group of chemistry teachers who wanted to encourage students to see that chemistry is interesting and fun and possibly even consider a career in this field. Mole Day is celebrated from 6:02am to 6:02pm on October 23 to commemorate Avogadro's Number, a basic measuring unit in chemistry.

Here are some resources to help students celebrate Mole Day, which is part of National Chemistry Week.
Check out a couple of additional resources for Mole Day on this previous post.
