Although some exhibits remain closed during the COVID crisis, we are adding other new displays. Now open is a new exhibit on the science of Chromatography.
In this exhibit, COLORFUL CHEMISTRY, visitors use paper chromatography to separate a sample of ink into its various components. After trying the exhibit, visitors take the results of their experiment home with them.
Chemists use chromatography to investigate samples, and a similar technique called Electrophoresis is used to analyze DNA.
