Wausau West students participate in MOLympics

Posted:

It's MOLympic time!

Chemistry students at Wausau West High School celebrated National Mole Day with some fun activities. Mole is a chemists unit of measure. The mole number is 602 followed by 21 zeros.

MOLympic activities included, Pin the Nose on the Mole, Mole of Water Relay and much more.

Teachers say it's a great way to get students interested in chemistry.

"We just want to generate enthusiasm for chemistry," said Erin Randall, chemistry teacher. "It's not very often where you get to have a holiday in the science class. So this is a time to just let loose, and have fun and generate enthusiasm, create memories for the students."

National Mole Day is October 23.

Organizers say this is the 8th year Wausau West has held the MOLympics.
