Kids getting a look into the world of chemistry

Kids getting a look into the world of chemistry at the Adair County Public Library Tuesday morning.

Kids got a friendly close look at the world of chemistry.

Students packed the Adair County Public Library Tuesday morning for a "Chem-istration." The guest speaker was Jesse Barton of Kirksville High School.

He did experiments on the library lawn in oxidation-reduction and atomic emission spectra from metal getting caught on fire to even putting a gummy bear in a test tube of chemicals.

The chemistry teacher also showed how chromatography worked with different elements.

Another cool experiment was a demonstration of sodium as a heat producer when he electrocuted a pickle.
