We are a dynamic and visionary organization committed to improving people’s lives in our community through the transforming power of chemistry. We strive to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Kalamazoo, Allegan and Van Buren counties.
First call for volunteers for our 2014 National Chemistry Week (NCW) outreach event at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum. We count on you to volunteer your time and engaging disposition for its success again this year!
To volunteer for the event please contact Lydia E. M. Hines.
National Chemistry Week will be upon us before we know it; the week itself is October 19-25 but our annual outreach event at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum will be on Saturday 11 October from noon to 4pm This year's theme is The Sweet Side of Chemistry – Candy and our hard-working collaborator at the Museum, Annette Hoppenworth, is looking forward to our participation and successful execution of this immensely popular program once again. Parents, grandparents, teachers, scout leaders and children are always rewarded with fun hands-on activities, and with written materials which they may take to their homes and their schools for encouragement in their science learning – we have all heard of STEM education; this informal science learning experience is a big part of it at an age when children are scientists in the making – inquisitive and truly curious. To volunteer for the event please contact Lydia E. M. Hines. If you are at a loss for an activity, she has a list she can send you, and she can train you in an activity of your choice.
