They went on to observe the additional two events of the afternoon.

The second event, “Chemistry Expo,” was led by current Union students who ran experiments in the lab for attendees to observe. The final workshop for the day was run by the College’s Biology Club. Their event was titled, “Biology Expo,” and attendees could participate in activities that involved questions about being a biology major.

The program was free and available to all, but registration was required because there were a limited number of spots available. For more information about Union County College, go to
