Celebrating Chemistry Editions

Celebrating Chemistry is designed to engage and educate children (Grades 4th - 6th) in the basic principles of chemistry and are available in both English and Spanish. Most editions are aligned with either National Chemistry Week (NCW) or Chemists Celebrate Earth Day (CCED) and contain articles, experiments, and puzzles based on each year’s themes. Below you can also find special Celebrating Chemistry Editions for both NCW and CCED, which were also inspired by the 2011 International Year of Chemistry.
