National Mole Day | NATL - Trivia- Celebrated on October 23rd each year from 6:02 AM to 6:02 PM in observance of the "mole". For 2015 the Mole Day theme is "May the MOLES be with you." The "mole" is a way of counting the Avogadro number, 6.02 x 10 to the 23rd power, of anything (just as a "dozen" is a way of counting 12 of anything). Mole Day owes its existence to an early 19th-century Italian physics professor named Amedeo Avogadro. He discovered that the number of molecules in a mole is the same for all substances. Because of this, chemists are able to precisely measure quantities of chemicals in the laboratory. Mole Day is celebrated to help all persons, especially chemistry students, become enthused about chemistry, which is the central science.
