“Chemistry isn’t just about memorizing chemical formulas or calculating
molar masses. Well, sometimes it is, but other times it’s about rolling
up your sleeves (warning: metaphor, always wear long sleeves in the lab)
and putting the theory into practice. Chemistry dictates the way
substances behave on a molecular scale, and that can mean very
noticeable changes on a larger one. Maybe something catches fire or
explodes — finding out is half the fun.”
