• Last week, seven DOW Chemical employees presented to Arcola’s 8th grade science classes. With diverse career backgrounds, the presenters engaged the students in an interactive session about polymers. The class participated in hands-on experimentation, allowing students to explore the absorption capabilities of various polymers. Additionally, the students gained valuable insights into the practical applications of polymers in everyday life, discovering their roles in cosmetics, paints, microchips, nonstick coatings, clothing, shoes, and adhesive glues. This firsthand exposure not only fostered a deeper understanding of scientific concepts but also provided a glimpse into the real-world impact of these materials across different industries.

    Thank you to DOW Chemical's employee volunteers for their engaging presentation!
