Happy Mole Day!

There are 6.02 x 1023 particles (atoms or molecules) in one Mole. This is Avogadro's constant. This number is precious to chemists who simply LIVE for stoichiometry. Therefore, it is celebrated by chemists, teachers, geeks and their secret societies worldwide. That celebration, in the form of geeky jokes, wacky songs, goofy craft and baking projects, a few more beers than usual, and color pages intended to brain wash our children, is observed from 6.02am till 6.02pm on October 23rd!
In honor of Mole Day, I made these science cookies for David to take to work. All of the glassware are sugar cookies and the atoms are cinnamon butter cookies. They are all decorated with green chocolate. Due to a shortage of chocolate, some of the glassware had to be left uncalibrated.
