Upper and Lower School Students Celebrate Chemistry Together

For the past 15 years, Cincinnati Country Day School Upper School students, Pre-Kindergarten I students, and Montessori students have come together to tie-dye shirts and celebrate Mole Day. 

Mole Day is known by chemists and chemistry enthusiasts as October 23, between 6:02 a.m. and 6:02 p.m., recognizing 6.02x10 to the 23rd power, a reference to the number of particles in one mole of a substance.  

Paula Butler, Upper School Chemistry Teacher, and Vanessa Collett, Lower School Lead Teacher started the Mole Day tie-dying tradition not only to celebrate the day but also to use chemistry in a fun way. It's something the students look forward to every year. 

 "It's so sweet watching the older students and younger students work together on a project," said Butler. "I love seeing the interaction and connections forming between the students, you can tell it means a lot to them."

 The ability to bring students together in meaningful and fun ways is one of the greatest assets of our campus.
