International Year of Chemistry

This year, Out of Hand is in residence at the NASA/NSF Center for Chemical Evolution.  Last week, we participated in an International Year of Chemistry event at Emory University.  200 Dekalb County High School students participated in a trial run of GROUP INTELLIGENCE, a mass MP3 experience.  

This Science and Art experience uses techniques from MP3 Flash Mobs to create immersive experiences for audiences.  In this experiment, participants play the part of primordial molecules forming the universe, solar system and the first complex organisms.

"It was especially entertaining during the theater part.  It's fun how you can put two things together (science and art) and something amazing comes out."
