Inspire Future Generations
As a chemist, you are in a unique position to help students learn about and love science. After all, you enjoyed learning science so much that you chose to devote your career to it!
Advance science education – in any way that you can!
Help teachers you know by introducing them to ACS’ outstanding educational materials for all ages, or become a classroom resource and lead a chemistry demonstration at a local school. You can share your passion for chemistry with youth outside of the classroom at community science events, scouts meetings, kids’ birthday parties and more.
Together we can improve science education! The Chemistry Ambassadors program can help you make a difference!
What would you like to do?
- Introduce Educators to ACS Resources
Share ACS’ leading chemistry education materials with teachers, guidance counselors or librarians.
- Become a Classroom Resource
Partner with a teacher or school to present an age-appropriate chemistry lesson, demonstration or lab.
- Work with Youth Outside of the Classroom
Incorporate a chemistry lesson into a child’s birthday party, scout event or other youth activity.
Check out how Jewyl Clarke, a Chula Vista Calif. chemistry teacher, answered the 2012 Flame Challenge question. Then see how well you can explain what a flame is to kids in your neighborhood.
The 2013 Challenge question will be available in the weeks ahead. Stay tuned.
