A Visit to Peking University College of Chemistry & Molecular Engineering

On October 21st, Dalton students visited the Peking University College of Chemistry & Molecular Engineering. Students visited the Molecular Materials and Nanomaterials Laboratory, Basic Instrument Analysis and Experiment Teaching laboratory, the Nobel Prize Wall, and the Periodic Table. During the tour, students had the opportunity to learn about a variety of sophisticated equipment. Some students noticed that most sophisticated equipment is made in foreign countries. According to the teacher's explanation, students learned that Chinese Nanotechnology faces obstacles and they were determined to word hard to achieve a breakthrough for Chinese science development.

After the tour, several experiments including an iodine clock experiment, a solar battery experiment, and a silver mirror test were demonstrated in an open laboratory for students to further learn about chemical elements. During this visit, students realized that Chemistry is the source of new substances and materials, is the foundation of biology, environment, materials, medicine, and many other disciplines, and is closely related to clothing, food, housing, and transportation.
