Philipsburg-Osceola High School students participated in Mole Day. To most people, a mole is a small mammal. But to chemists, it’s a basic measuring unit that they can’t live without. This was cause for celebration Tuesday, which is officially known as Mole Day, for students in Ms. Sagaities’ chemistry classes.
The national event commemorates Avogadro’s number, 6.02 x 10^23, which is a common measuring unit in chemistry, similar to a dozen. “Welcome to the North
Mole” was the theme of this year’s Mole Day, which played out on T-shirts, homemade snowflakes and other Mole-themed creations, such as a “Moler Bear.”
