International Mole Day

MOLE Day is coming.  We must celebrate!

Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 10^23), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Mole Day with various activities related to chemistry and/or moles.

For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the atomic mass of the molecule. For example, the water molecule has an atomic mass of 18, therefore one mole of water weighs 18 grams. An atom of neon has an atomic mass of 20, therefore one mole of neon weighs 20 grams. In general, one mole of any substance contains Avogadro's Number of molecules or atoms of that substance. This relationship was first discovered by Amadeo Avogadro (1776-1858) and he received credit for this after his death. (

Mission and Purpose

The club has as its purpose to experience chemistry beyond what is taught in the classroom, learn about study and career opportunities in the many and vaired fields of chemstry and provide service for the betterment of their communities.

Arcade Creek Monitoring Project

After reconnaissance of Arcade Creek we found a suitable sampling point.  We used field equipment to measure pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen and electrical conductivity.  We continued sampling and obtained water flow data from Sacramento County.  We put our project together on a poster board and won first place at the District Science Fair for 9-12th, and a special award because some of our members are English Language Learners.
