The first seminar in the Mystery Science Seminar series will include the difference among phosphorescence, luminescence, bioluminescence, and chemiluminescence. Demonstrations and hands-on activities will allow students to get first-hand knowledge of these phenomena. Students will take notes into the provided Laboratory Notebooks, and will depart with several items to allow them to conduct further research into the many topics discussed in class.

The Mystery Science Seminar series is being hosted this year by Joe Domanico. There will be a total of four seminars, spread out throughout this year, given on the third Saturday of the month. Mr. Domanico is a 2015 recipient of the STEM Innovator Award from the Northeastern Maryland Technology Council and has been chosen as a Paul Harris Fellow by the Southern Harford Rotary Club. He has been involved in STEM activities for over 15 years and is best known for his energetic chemistry demonstrations. He joins us this year to discuss and demonstrate various topics to include phosphorescence, luminescence, the electromagnetic spectrum, sound and light, and the joining of
various STEM topics in his passion for COSPLAY.
