Illinois Valley Community College – Chem Club’s annual SCIFEST @ Illinois Valley Community College Gymnasium
Apr 29 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Illinois Valley Community College Chem Club’s annual SCIFEST is 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, April 29 in the gym. A record 600 guests attended last year.

“This is our club’s biggest event and we want to break last year’s record,” said Chem Club President Adam Skoff.

Guests will learn how to make fire with air pressure, study the minerals of Minecraft, search for microscopic creatures and watch a flame tornado.

“Chemistry Professor Dr. Matthew Johll will once again trust science over common sense as he has a cement block smashed off his chest while lying on a bed of nails,” said Skoff. “But the real question answered April 29 is can he finally defeat his nemesis and use the power of the atmosphere to crush a 55-gallon barrel.”

For information, contact IVCC chemistry professor Dr. Matthew Johll at (815) 224-0468.

U of I Extension “Maximizing your Slow Cooker” class @ Richard A. Mautino Memorial Library
May 4 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Normally, we think of using our slow cookers for fall and winter comfort foods. But, spring and summer are also a great time to prepare dinner in the slow cooker. Slow cookers have several benefits, they don’t heat up the kitchen and give you time to enjoy the nice weather – the kitchen is cool and dinner is already prepared!

Join University of Illinois Extension Nutrition and Wellness Extension Educator Susan Glassman for “Maximizing your Slow Cooker” class on May 04, 2016 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Richard A. Mautino Memorial Library, 215 E. Cleveland Street, Spring Valley, IL. Participants will learn how to quickly put together delicious, healthy meals in your slow cooker and give yourself time to enjoy a cool kitchen and the spring and summer seasons!

To register please call University of Illinois Extension at 815-224-0889. Please register by May 02, 2016. Thank you!
