Since 2008 the Museum at CHF has been sharing our thoughts about chemistry’s role in shaping society. Now, in honor of our 5th anniversary, we want you to share yours. We’re collaborating with First Person Arts to host a StorySlam on everyone’s favorite topic: chemistry. Come enjoy a tasty beverage, listen to some great stories, and even tell one of your own.  

How does a StorySlam work?

Everyone in the audience is invited to share a five-minute, personal story from their lives that relates to chemistry. If you have a story you want to share, simply sign up at the door before or during each StorySlam. Two StorySlam events will take place, at 5:30 and 6:45 p.m.
