The Enumclaw STEM Expo welcomed kids and adults of all ages from the community and nearby school districts for an afternoon of science. ACES taught the audience about electrochemistry by making rainbow-colored earrings, or Enginearrings, from titanium.

Medina Elementary STEM Night

STEM night at Medina Elementary School was so much fun! ACES introduced a new demo: Cloud in a Bottle. We taught all ages about phase changes, vapor-liquid equilibrium, and how clouds are made. We even connected the science back to chemical engineering, discussing how we implement these concepts in distillation columns for separation of mixed liquids.
