On Wednesday, November 18, 2015, the science students from RVHS attended the 28th Annual Faraday Lecture at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall at Pittsburgh University. The lecture was given by Garon Smith, Ph.D. from Montana University who presented multiple chemical reactions including the color change of chemical solutions, as well as an explosion that produced a thick black cloud of smoke that emerged into a smoke ring.

The lecture was in honor of Micheal Faraday was an English scientist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. Faraday’s  discoveries include electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism, and electrolysis.  The lecture was hosted by  the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh and the Society of Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh. The field trip was an unique learning experience for RVHS students interested in science, especially chemistry.
