Glowing flowers

Chem Club at Hilliard Bradley High School

It is wonderful to see Chemistry Clubs popping up everywhere. Teachers Courtney Goodwin and Jennifer Kieffer started a Chem Club at Hilliard Bradley School, Hilliard, Ohio. The theme of one of their monthly meetings was “Let’s glow,” in which students experimented with luminol, perborate and copper sulfate; created luminescent flowers using highlighter pens (as shown on front cover); and played with glowing bubbles. The cover photo of the glowing flowers was taken by a student, Chloe Hoang.
