Today we presented our organic chemistry projects, in which we explored an organic molecule of our choice. We were to investigate its chemistry, properties, history, and impacts on society. Aromatics, TNT, Testosterone, and Morphine- these were just a few of the many molecules that were presented. As expected, it was quite an interesting class (thanks to my charismatic peers). This is what I love about Science Academy- in Chemistry last semester, we learned about the different parts of simple organic molecules and this was our chance to apply our knowledge to molecules we come across everyday. We had the opportunity to inquire about our own curiosities, and curiosity is the best way to learn!
