Accent on Academics

Thomas County Central’s chemistry students recently celebrated Mole Day.  Celebrated annually on October 23 from 6:02 a.m. to 6:02 p.m., Mole Day commemorates Avogadro's Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry.  This year’s theme was “Mole-o-ween.”  Students made posters and T-shirts, wore tattoos, and ate “mol”asses cookies and drank coca“mola.”
