DeSales Chemistry Demonstrations

The DeSales University Chemistry Program will present the fall edition of the 13th Annual Chemistry Demonstrations Program on Wednesday, October 30, at 7:00 p.m. in the Hurd Auditorium, located in the Hurd Science Center.

The event is free and open to the public but because seating is limited, reservations are required. Please call Ms. Renee Fair at 610.282.1100, ext. 1386, or email her at for reservations.

The demonstrations combine chemical concepts with humor and music to present over a dozen highly visual and entertaining experiments that are a treat for all the senses.

The DeSales faculty and students who participate in the Chemistry Demonstrations Program seek to instill elementary, middle, and high school students with a love of science and in particular, to enrich their understanding of chemistry.

Students from area middle schools and high schools come to the University’s Center Valley campus to attend daytime performances during the academic year. The program is seen by approximately 500 students each semester.

The Chemistry Demonstrations Program is directed by Dr. Rodger Berg, associate professor, coordinator of chemistry, chairperson of DeSales University’s natural science department and head of DeSales University’s natural science and healthcare division. He is assisted by Dr. Julie Himmelberger, assistant professor; Dr. Sara Hayik, assistant professor; Dr. Francis Mayville, associate professor of chemistry; and Mrs. Patricia Hartman, chemistry laboratory manager.
