What Chemists Do
Remember to take photos and share
Photographs and written accounts of club activities are a great way to showcase your club in your school yearbook, advertise to recruit more students, and demonstrate pride in your interest in chemistry.
If you would like to be featured on the ACS website or share your activities with the community, please email email@example.com. ACS requires a Student Photo Release form for photographs to be posted on the website or used in any print material.
