Kids and Chemistry

Kids & Chemistry is a community-based program that brings together scientists and children to do hands-on science activities. Volunteers include ACS members, ACS Student Chapters, and corporate groups. 

 We are always seeking individuals who wish to bring this great program into their schools and local community. If you are interested, please contact any of the Section Officers

For more information about the program, go to  the Kids and Chemistry page of the American Chemical Society.
