Today from 6:02 am to 6:02 pm is National Mole day. This day commemorates Avogardo’s Number, the basic measuring unit in chemistry created by early 19th century physics professor, Amedeo Avogadro after discovering that the number of molecules in a mole are the same for all substances . This discovery has ultimately allowed chemists to precisely measure quantities of chemicals in the laboratory to this day. In appreciation of Avogardo’s findings, one Wisconsin high school chemistry teacher, Maurice Oehler, founded the unofficial holiday on May 15, 1991. Today, the holiday is celebrated as a way to foster interest in chemistry by students. On this day chemistry teachers all over celebrate with their students through mole themed food, crafts, and games. Celebrate National Mole day yourself with materials from your local library related to moles or chemistry. Click the links below to see what materials our library offers:
