Snacks with a Scientist: December 2017
Olive Children Foundation and Berkeley Academy thank Mr. Andy Sass for being our guest speaker this month, sharing his experiences in mineral extraction and chemical engineering with our students. Mr. Sass received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from U.C. Davis and has worked on and designed dozens of chemical plants. Mr. Sass brought several samples of minerals including crystalline gypsum, sodium carbonate, gold ore, and a 20 kilogram ingot of lead! During the event, students were also introduced to the various industrial and commercial applications of chemical engineering, and how we use goods made possible by chemical engineering in everyday life. We are thankful for having the privilege of hosting Mr. Sass as he shared his experiences as a chemical engineer with the kids.
