      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.
