On Tues, Oct. 23, Abington High School students in Mrs. Farias’s chemistry classes took part in Mole Day, which is celebrated on this day every year from 6:02 AM to 6:02 PM, which is represented in the number.

The term “mole” comes from the number 6.02 x 10^23 which was created by Wilhelm Ostwald in 1894. According to a chemistry site on the mole, mole is the “mass of substance containing the same number of units as there are atoms in exactly 12.000 g of 12C.”

As a fun way to celebrate Mole Day, students in chemistry created stuffed moles. Students had to use a theme for their mole that included a pun. Some students used the names “super-mole,” “Coca-Mola,” and even “mole-in-one.”

Students used a variety of materials to create their moles, such as fabric, duct tape, and paper.

In class, students presented their moles and then did an activity. Students had options to write a song or even create a Mole Day greeting card.

So next time you see someone celebrate Mole Day, you will know it does not refer to the animal!
