Chemistry Saves Lives - Texas A&M University's Chemistry Road Show
Presented by Dr. Jim Pennington
A Fall Wizard is coming to spark your interest in Chemistry! Join us to ignite imaginations and inspire students using chemistry demonstrations! There will be exploding pumpkins, weird polymers, super cold materials and even some surprising loud reactions! Dr. Jim Pennington presents the Texas A&M University Chemistry Road Show.
Chemistry is fundamental to medical education, acting as the foundation on which the human body functions. Chemistry is the key to life and underpins the search for a cure for cancer. The late President Bush and First Lady Barbara Bush were advocates of medical research to find cures for cancer following the death of their daughter Robin. With research, cancer is being cured.

Join us at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum for FREE Family Fun this Fall. Story time begins at 10:30 a.m. and you can enjoy crafts movies and our hay maze! Free admission October 14-19!
FUMCO's annual "Pumpkin Patch for Mission" is unique in that ALL proceeds from pumpkin sales are given away. Our mission is to offer a safe and fun fall activity for families and students to enjoy year after year while also funding local, regional and global mission!
Our pumpkins are born in New Mexico and transported to Owasso in tractor trailers. The pumpkins come from Pumpkins USA/Pumpkins Fundraising. They provide pumpkins to non-profit organizations for fundraising sales. Check them out on Facebook!
Purchasing pumpkins at the patch helps make a difference locally and globally. The 2016 proceeds allowed us to provide financial support or donate items to: Owasso Community Resources (OCR) , Arubah Community Clinic in Collinsville, City Lights Foundation (sponsor of Night Light Tulsa) , FUMCO Food Pantry , FUMCO Christmas Everyday fund, Restore Hope Ministries, UMCOR relief kits, OKVIM ongoing Bolivia mission efforts, FUMCO sponsored VIM Mexico Spring Break mission trip, OKUMC sponsored Exodus House and CJAMM ministries, OCR sponsored Thanksgiving Baskets and Christmas Angel Tree gifts for CJAMM and children through OCR. Learn more about these missions at our website.
In addition to selling pumpkins (which come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors!), our activities include: outdoor classroom, weekend hayrides, a fun maze, stickers, and wonderful photo backdrops.
Most importantly, the "Pumpkin Patch for Mission" is also an outreach to the Owasso and surrounding communities. The "Outdoor Classroom" provides a fun learning opportunity for school field trips. The annual "Hance Henrie Memorial Run for the Patch" start and finish line are at the Patch. A free outdoor movie night and the annual Halloween "Trunk or Treat" are also held at the patch.
We are also collecting NEW SOCKS of all sizes to give to our friends at Night Light Tulsa in support of their month long SOCKtober initiative. (less)... Read more
