ACS Kids Zone at the March for Science

ACS will sponsor the ACS Kids Zone to promote Chemists Celebrate Earth Day (CCED), an environmental awareness campaign held annually on April 22. Children will participate in hands-on activities geared towards this year’s CCED theme, “Chemistry Helps Feed the World!” Come search for starch, learn about Magic Nuudles, extract iron from your breakfast, find out about UV beads and blockers, and get a giveaway bag with a printed issue of Celebrating Chemistry, ACS’s biannual children’s publication with fun hands-on activities and articles, and other goodies.
