Participate in each monthly challenge to learn new skills and expand your knowledge. Explore the current challenge below, share your accomplishments on social media with the monthly hashtag, and check back soon for next month's challenge.
October is a great time for outreach. National Chemistry Week (October 18-24, 2020), Mole Day (10/23, of course), and Halloween all make great opportunities to share the impact chemistry has on the world… and have fun doing it.
Your challenge is simple—do some outreach this month and share it with #OctoberOutreach. Do something with your chapter or GSO. Do something on your own. Work with kids, work with adults. Share your love of chemistry with activities, videos, articles… whatever!
