ACS Kids Zone
ACS Kids Zones are events that feature science activities conducted by ACS members to teach the public about the importance of chemistry. For ACS Spring 2022, two events are being planned - one for younger children and one for high schoolers.
Both programs will include talks by 2021 Nobel Laureate David MacMillan and will be hosted by the Fleet Science Center. Registrants for either event will receive free tickets to the Fleet, and due to space limitations are limited to 80 people each hour.
Both programs will also be live streamed on Facebook.

Virtual Pacifichem Kids Zone
Aspiring chemists of all ages viewed exciting demonstrations presented by real scientists during the Pacifichem Kids Zone. This event was hosted by the sponsoring societies of Pacifichem and consisted of two parts: the first is a video that can be watched any time at this page.
The second part of this event were Question and Answer sessions with our presenters. Our presenters represented the Chemical Society of Japan, the New Zealand Institute of Chemistry, and the American Chemical Society.
Watch the video on Vimeo. Closed captions are available in English, French, Chinese (Simplified), Japanese, and Korean.
