Community Outreach

CHEMISTRY OUTREACH

I have been involved in several types of community outreach projects to promote science education and chemistry. One of the best was a biannual event I worked on with teachers from each elementary school in our district and from our middle school. It was a Science Extravaganza.

National Chemistry Week

It is not too early to think about National Chemistry Week which is coming up October 20 - 26.  This year's theme is "Energy: Now and Forever".  Did you know there is a poetry contest and information about participating in community outreach activities on the ACS web site?  Visit www.acs.org/ncw for more information.
