Capturing the energy and enthusiasm of ACS student members...
showcasing the activities, events,and accomplishments of your chapters.
Chapter members from the University of Puerto
Rico-Mayagüez Campus celebrate NCW by holding a
Periodic Table cookie sale. Additional events include
green chemistry demonstrations, the Chemistry
Research Lab tour of the chemistry department’s
research labs, and “Goofy Games: How Much Do You
Know About Chemistry?” In Puerto Rico, all of the
ACS student chapters also participate in the island-wide celebration of NCW— Festival de la Química—
hosted by the Puerto Rico ACS Local Section.
At Virginia Tech (Blacksburg), the Chemical Illusions
show is an ongoing NCW tradition organized by the
student chapter. Activities include eating liquid nitrogen and making slime. Demos show the color and
sound of chemistry using burning salts, gummy bears,
and more. A $2.00 entrance fee paid by participants
raises money for materials used during this show and
at workshops held throughout the year.
