Josephine Parlagreco from Mepham High School in Bellmore, New York sent in this photo of Elizabeth Eisenberg, her student, holding bubbles containing natural gas — then lit on fire. Her hand was wet which allowed her to “hold” the flames safely. The photo was taken by another student, Adam Greene. If you would like to participate in this year’s Chemistry in Pictures contest and showcase your classroom chemistry on the front cover of Chem 13 News
We are proud to showcase moments in the chemistry classroom.
Email your photo entries to Jean Hein and be on our front cover! Although the contest is open to high school students, we ask that teachers send in the photos. In the email, please include a short paragraph describing the photo. The deadline is June 30, 2015.
