Maryland Section

Chemistry in the Library

The Chemistry in the Library program is a volunteer effort by members of the ACS Maryland Local Section to bring the fun and wonder of chemistry to kids age 6 and up. We visit local libraries in the Maryland area and help kids with a variety of hands-on chemistry activities. We hope to see you & your student there!  Activities are geared towards students at the 2-6 grade level.  Students in grades pre-K-1 are welcome to come too as long as parents stay and help their student with the activities.


If you're interested in helping out, please come to one of our events.

We start setting up about half an hour ahead of the start time.
