The CGSA hosted 200 second graders from CICS Loomis Primary School. Members of the CGSA and other chemistry graduate students volunteered to perform chemistry demonstrations for these kids with the goal of sparking their interest in science. All of the students enjoyed their time at UIC and some of them have said that they are going to go to UIC to become a scientist when they grow up. Another student asked their teacher how to spell nitrogen on the bus ride home. One of volunteers overheard one of the students saying, "I thought this was going to be boring, but it was actually really awesome."
