AUSTIN (KXAN) — University of Texas at Austin Chemistry Professor and author Dr. Kate Biberdorf, also known as Kate the Chemist, was joined at UT Tower today by 50 female science students for a large-scale science experiment.
At the UT Tower, Biberdorf and the students set off a serious of thermodynamic “thundercloud” reactions. One by one the reactions exploded out from a lineup of white buckets until the base of UT Tower was surrounded in a giant white cloud.
The scientific display was part of Biberdorf’s upcoming appearance on the CBS Saturday morning TV show Mission Unstoppable. The show aims to highlight a diverse group of women scientists from various fields to offer role models for young girls looking into STEM careers.
