Chemists Celebrate Earth Day (CCED) 2013
Theme: “Our Earth: Handle with Care!”
April 22, 2013
Chemistry is all around us and is vital to our planet’s sustainability. This year’s theme explores these four concepts of air, plants/soil, water, and recycling.
Community Event: Be Creative; Take Action
The National Illustrated Poem Contest is focused on this year’s CCED theme, “Our Earth: Handle with Care!” The illustrated poems relate to common applications of chemistry in reusable materials through reduction of waste.
ChemMatters, a magazine for high school students, will contain content in its April issue related to recycling.
This National Science Education Standards-aligned hands-on activity newspaper for elementary school students will highlight:
- Effects of acid rain
- Importance of recycling
- Ways to increase sustainability through recycling
- Properties of gases
Each year Chemists Celebrate Earth Day reaches millions of people with positive messages about the contributions of chemistry.
Join in the celebration of CCED 2013.
