Each year every local section in the US participates in activities during National Chemistry Week to highlight the impact of chemistry on all of our daily lives. There is a yearly theme and the NCW Office produces activities and products that the local sections can avail themselve of to conduct National Chemistry Week programs in schools, museums, malls, etc. in the communities within there geographic area. Visit the NCW site to see what is planned nationally this year. Then contact the Alabama section NCW Coordinator to get involved in this fun-filled outreach activity. We take materials to elementary through high schools, conduct a competition, and involve our local Student Chapters and Chemistry Clubs.
Each year the local section sponsors a National Chemistry Week Poster Contest. Check out the Poster Contest Details for this year's contest..
