Make-it-Yourself Workshop- Full STEAM Ahead – Chemistry and Color Collide!

October 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

FREE with admission

The Science of Tie-Die with Phil Wesel

Did you ever see the unique patterns on a tie-die t-shirt? These patterns are made with precise (or not so precise) dips of color and strategically placed rubber bands. There is a science to that style! Come explore the Science and Math of tie-die- don’t forget to bring a shirt or other article of clothing to dye yourself!

About the Instructor: Phil Wesel

Phil Wesel has spent nearly 30 years working in the science, technology, engineering, and marketing fields (yes, marketing- not mathematics!) He began his career working at General Motors on micro-computers and later received a B.S. and M.S. degree in electrical engineering. Phil’s career has had him working on everything from power inverters to low-frequency transmitters in a variety of STEM fields. He currently teaches Physics and Chemistry at Oxford Area High School.

Outside of the classroom, Phil is a licensed auctioneer and has conducted over 100 auctions in Southeast Pennsylvania. He has traveled to China, Australia, and Brazil during his STEM career and wants to travel into space one day. Be sure to ask him about his pet rattlesnake!
