Safe Lab for Dangerous Reactions

CHEE’s goal is to purchase equipment for a new safety lab that will better prepare students for the workforce -- and save lives.

With your support, the department will install a bomb calorimeter/reactor. This instrument measures the heat combustion of a sample in an oxygen-rich environment.

Students will test different chemicals and observe pressure and temperature changes.

They’ll see runaway reactions -- in action.

They’ll understand the causes, see the dangers first-hand and learn how to prevent them in a safe and controlled setting.

The equipment costs $45,000. Industry partners, donors and department funds are covering about two-thirds of the project, leaving $15,000 to be raised through crowdfunding.

Please help us reach our goal and give today!
