Replica of One of First Mass Spectrometers Exhibited

  • Location:Science Center, COCC Bend Campus
  • Date/Time:All day, everyday starting 5/9/2014 through 6/14/2014

COCC is hosting a museum-quality traveling exhibit showcasing a replica of one of the original Mass Spectrometers ever built. It will be on display as part of the Annual Poster Session. A mass spectrometer is a scale that can sort, weigh and count individual atoms and molecules. It can be used to help scientists identify the molecules present in solids, liquids and gases; determine the quantity of each type of molecule; and determine which atoms comprise a molecule and how they are arranged.

The exhibit will continue through mid-June on the second floor of the Science Center on the COCC Bend Campus.

Science Center is generally open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. Info: 541-383-7411
