The Science Club at Haas Hall – Fayetteville impacted 45 fifth graders from Warner Elementary, a rural, predominantly Native American school in Oklahoma, in one day across three different class periods during the Haas Hall Spring Break. Cameron Loftin is a member of the Haas Hall Fayetteville Science Club. In his presentation to the 5th graders, He showed how glow sticks work and use chemiluminescence to glow. Cameron knew the students would already be familiar with glow sticks but might have not known how they worked. He discussed how the glow sticks combine two different chemicals together that react and create a colorful glow. He also defined the word chemiluminescence, which is when two or more chemicals combine and luminate (glow). Cameron enjoyed teaching the students about glow sticks and knew they enjoyed learning too.
