This upcoming week, October 20-26th, is National Chemistry Week (NCW)! NCW is an annual community-based program that unites members of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The goal of NCW is encourage individuals interested in chemistry to communicate and connect the importance of chemistry to their everyday lives in a positive way. The theme for this year’s NCW is “Marvelous Metals”.
Students want to do something for NCW? Stop by the Fenway Room this Tuesday (October 22nd) at 6:45 pm to say hello to Emmanuel College’s Chem Club members! Chem Club gives students the opportunity to discuss chemistry outside of the classroom through activities, projects, open discussion, and volunteering opportunities. More than half of the club’s executive board is working on a research team, and they can help answer any questions on courses and how to find research opportunities on and off campus.
Some upcoming activities/events for the club include pumpkin carving, a “Set Things on Fire” demo, a Mario Kart tournament vs the Biology department, and “Program in a Box” event through the ACS. Chem Club normally meets Tuesdays at 8 pm in Wilkens Science Center. To stay updated on what’s upcoming in the Chemistry Club, you can follow there instagram and twitter @ECchemclub
