Do you or anyone you know advise an ACS Chem Club? I have heard of it over the past few years, but I have been busy and didn’t want to add another thing to my plate. When I found out that there are no requirements of what or how much we have to do as a group, I decided that I could give it a try. I appreciate that ACS provides some great resources. You can find many ideas on the ACS web site.
I just got a packet of Chem Club calendars, posters and other goodies this week and am excited to get started. I have only had the posters up for two days and they have already generated interest. I have told students to think about what they would like the focus of the group to be and bring their ideas to our first meeting in October. I gave them a list to consider and/or add to as they see fit.
· Environment, maybe initiate a recycle program at the school
· Science field trips
· Careers in science
· Experience science/chemistry activities that are student and/or teacher led.
· Plan a science/demo day for elementary students.
I will keep you posted on how things go for us. In the meantime, I would love to hear from other ACS Chem Club advisors!
