Next Tuesday is MOLE DAY--and we get to share the amazement of Science with kids from all over this area!

Here's some fun Mole facts for you:
  • One mole of paper would make a stack that would reach to the moon more than 80 billion times
  • One mole of grains of sand would be more than all of the sand on Miami Beach
  • One mole of blood cells would be more than the total number of blood cells found in every human on earth
  • A one liter bottle of water contains 55.5 moles of water
  • One mole of inches would be1,616,434 light years, or across our galaxy and back 8 times
  • One mole of seconds is about 19 quadrillion years, 4,240,666 times the age of the earth, or 954,150 times the age of the universe itself
  • One mole of cents could repay the United States National Debt 86 million times

Here's a helpful site regarding Lewis Structures-- (thanks, Brendan!)
