Mole Day (6:02 a.m. – 6:02 p.m.)

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.

Celebrate in unusual ways!  Make a mole-related dessert for your family & friends, or host a chemistry event (or creative chemistry food) event at your school, neighborhood, or a local shelter.  Find unique & fun opportunities to generate youth interest in STEM!

Or just enjoy mole puns & jokes.
