R.O.C.K. 是一个于1995年由. 爱德华·P. Zovinka, 洛雷托欧宝体育app入口化学教授, PA and the American Chemical Society-Student Affiliates (Chemistry Club). R.O.C.K. 现在由. 阿什利·史密斯-迪姆勒,化学助理教授.



R.O.C.K. program demonstrates to local K-12 schools and youth organizations that science (especially chemistry) is important in everyone's life and can be exciting and interesting. 通过R.O.C.K. 由欧宝体育app入口的学生领导的活动, kids can conduct experiments and try out equipment provided by the R.O.C.K. 程序,全部免费.

R.O.C.K. performs hands-on chemistry experiments and activities using mainly household products to show the importance of chemistry in day to day living. We focus on classroom visits (not stage presentations) in the 5 county area around SFU (Bedford, 布莱尔, 威尔士, 明显差异, 和萨默塞特). R.O.C.K. also looks at the role that chemistry will have in the future as well as how it will benefit our society.
