The CGC had a great time volunteering at another fun Thinkery21 event. This month the theme was Spy School, so we presented a poster and activity about invisible ink! Visitors were tasked with discovering our volunteers’ real identities by revealing invisible messages.

The CGC is hosting two mindfulness yoga classes for chemistry graduate students this semester! Minimal movement will be required so feel free to come in your work clothes. Mindfulness is a great way to help manage your stress levels through the day. We would love to have you there!
