Chemistry plays a crucial role in developing the medicines we take when we get sick, the vaccinations we roll our sleeves up for, and the methods we use to learn what is happening inside of our bodies. Explore hands-on experiments and demonstrations about “The Healing Power of Chemistry,” and learn about how chemistry plays a role in keeping us healthy.

Did you Know? 11% of all medicines considered “essential” by the World Health Organization (WHO) are derived from flowering plants!
