Dr. Henry A. Charlier obtained his BS degree in Chemistry and Biology from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point. Following this he received a PhD in Biochemistry from the Medical College of Wisconsin and then did a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Iowa. Since 2000 Dr. Charlier has been a professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Boise State University. All throughout his time at BSU, he has engaged thousands of people in STEM outreach as his alter ego Dr. Picklestein.
The 2020 Engineering and Science Festival marks the last one in which Lady Argentum (Karen Hammond) will participate as she will retire the end of this school year. She has been a “regular” participant in this event since the beginning.

In order to send her off properly, Dr. Picklestein (Henry Charlier) and Lady Argentum are rocking campus today with their best chemistry demonstrations to create a memory that attendees will not forget.

Let’s send Lady Argentum off with a literal bang!💥

On October 11th, our GEAR UP Coordinators accompanied Buhl School District students on a campus tour of Boise State University! These students were able to learn about campus life and college options. Students also heard an engaging presentation from Dr. Picklestein and participated in a self-led scavenger hunt!

Yesterday our Idaho Science and Aerospace Scholars Summer Academy 2 students started on their Mars mission projects and spent time at Boise State University touring the facilities, learning about robots, 3D printers, even riding a Segway! Thank you Dr. JoAnn Lighty (Dean of Boise State College of Engineering) and Dr. Jennifer Snow & Sherry Dismuke (Boise State University College of Education) for hosting a Q&A session with ISAS students!

Students then enjoyed a demonstration about rockets care of ISAS professional mentor, Corey Morasch of Visioneering Space, and a presentation from Dr. Henry Charlier (Boise State University Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry's Dr. Picklestein)!

Later in the day Discovery Center of Idaho hosted a robotics challenge for ISAS students where they build sumo-fighting bots!

Many thanks to our wonderful partners in providing this Summer Academy to Idaho students!
Check it out! Such a great idea, especially for outreach ( middle school/highschool)

Do you know what type of spider this is? It was on my dogs face when we were running around the foothills. I want to kill it if it’s an invasive specie or return it to the foothills if it isn’t.

Bad Chemistry Joke Friday - Public Service Announcement On April 1 Edition.

This weekend I was shocked to find out that we had dihydrogen monoxide in the Boise River near my house. This stuck can be nasty. In its gaseous state it is known to produce severe burns. In its solid state, I have known it to cause our schools and many businesses to close down for the day. It is can be a real menace to our society. Please read about this very dangerous chemical in the website below.

Idaho man says he completed his goal of breaking 52 world records in a single year

Boise State’s annual Engineering and Science Festival would normally be this upcoming Saturday, but thanks to the recent upsurge in COVID cases it was once again cancelled. It was a big disappointment to hear this news. While not the same as being there, I decided to share this article about a popular festival participant, David Rush. He broke 52 world records in 2021. https://www.npr.org/2022/01/27/1076140207/idaho-man-says-he-completed-his-goal-of-breaking-52-world-records-in-a-single-ye

Dumb clean joke contest:
My friend Allan, who is a biologist and more recently an author (It’s Not Magic, It’s Biology: a guided tour through your molecular world https://www.amazon.com/dp/1667803816/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_WJHHC7J0S3YP255AKYKV), just sent me this joke to prove that scientists have an odd sense of humor:

I heard that with so many sports events canceled, the world origami championships will be broadcast on paperview.

Contest: In the comments section of this post, share a dumb, clean joke and the one that I judge to be the best will receive a copy of Allan’s book (see Amazon reference). I have two copies and will send one of them to the person who submits the best dumb joke. I will announce the winning joke on January 3, 2022.

Though it has o”curd” to me this is not really a chemistry riddle and is more of a bad dairy-based joke that I am trying to milk for a chuckle.
