Senior American Special - Gotta Get Glowing

Petit Jean State Park

October 17, 2012
1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.
Meeting Place: CCC Room of Mather Lodge
Admission: Free

Meet Park Interpreter Don Simons and entomologist Lori Spencer in the CCC Room of Mather Lodge to explore the fascinating world of bioluminescence and fluorescence. Fireflies are probably the most familiar animals that light up the summer nights. They are the first to use true clean energy. Discover the difference between these two phenomena with a few fun chemistry tricks, and different organisms that use these strategies for survival. We'll also explore what the popular television crime shows get right and wrong, using chemistry and the ultraviolet spectrum of light. With Halloween just around the corner, it's time to "get glowing!"
