Science Alive! (February 2023)
The Jaffe Group was back at Science Alive with even more science demos! In addition to cabbage-water pH indicators and the wide world of crystals, we brought in “warm ice” demonstrations to show real-time crystallization (supersaturated sodium acetate) and iodine clock reactions!

TRiO Talent Search Summer Academy (July 2022)
The Jaffe Group loved putting together a hands-on lab activity for ND TRiO Talen Search Summer Academy, a college access program that provides academic, career, and financial counseling to South Bend youth in grades seven through twelve—empowering them to graduate from high school and continue on to complete post-secondary education. The students got to split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity!

Science Alive! (May 2022)
The Jaffe Group had a blast demonstrating the pH indicator properties of anthocyanin from red cabbage and how atoms/molecules pack in the solid state to form crystals! The 30th anniversary of Science Alive! brought St. Joseph County learners of all ages to see some awesome and fun STEM demonstrations.
