Chemistry at Home

The ACS Education Division is making educational resources available by topic to aid parents and teachers in student enrichment during this time of distance learning. We have bundled materials from the Reactions Video series, C&EN, our magazines within the Education Division and our portfolio of hands-on activities for students in grades K–12 and beyond. These resources focus on five topics — The Earth, Water, Food, Health & Your Body, and The Periodic Table — and put a spotlight on the connection between chemistry and everyday life.
