The ACS mole mascot put in an appearance at last weekend's National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in Washington, D.C. Doug Dollemore, a senior science writer in the ACS Office of Public Affairs, manned the mole suit. Would-be moles need to be 5'7" to 5'11" to fit in the suit, which has a fan in its head to keep the "mole"nteer cool. The mole was part of the USA Science & Engineering Festival delegation, which also included the Math Tree, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, a robotics club from Rockville, and a large mechanical spider from Vancouver, B.C.
