Hello American Chemical Society!

This blog will be utilized to share information on ACS involvement this academic year. To current and future ACS members, read up!

On October 31st, ACS visited Canton Central’s McKenney Middle School where we engaged 5th graders in various chemistry experiments. The students greatly enjoyed observing the Giant’s Toothpaste reaction, eating Nitrogen ice cream, smelling various esters, and making their own Bouncy Balls. And, we were featured in the Watertown Daily Times (see link below)! A big thank you to all students who helped out!

And on November 1st, ACS hosted fall inductions to the Chymist Honorary Society. Congratulations to Lara Clemens ’14 (biochemistry), Julia Friesen ’14 (biology), Jesse Gaboury ’15 (chemistry), and Rachael Kenney ’14 (chemistry)!

Also underway this semester, ACS has cleaned our adopted roadway and is working on designing periodic tables for the Chemistry department. A design contest will be held towards the end of the semester, with the winning periodic tables being posted in Johnson and Valentine and the winner receiving a gift card. Best of luck to all!

Thanks for reading!

Lindsey and Rachael
