ACS GCI offers cutting-edge workshops that students don’t want to miss!  Structured with an interactive and hands-on learning approach, they provide attendees—undergrads, graduate students, and post docs—with the opportunity to "put science into action." The workshops take green chemistry & engineering topics beyond what students learn at the university, offer a networking platform that enables them to acquire and build professional relationships, and equip students with the tools and resources needed to apply and teach what they’ve learned. 

The workshops are offered during the Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference, ACS National Meetings, and other related conferences throughout the year.

The 2016 GC&E Student Workshop will be held June 13, 2016 in Portland, Oregon. This year's theme is a design challenge focused on dyes and pigments. More information can be found on
