Plan an Event or Activity

Whether you are an active ACS member, teacher, volunteer, or student, you can plan events in your community to join the year-long celebration. Here are some general tips from ACS Local Sections, Student Chapters and ChemClubs to inspire you and help you launch your event!

  • Plan your event far in advance.
  • Reach out to local museums, science centers, libraries, schools, and other science-related organizations.
  • Offer food and refreshments. Check out these periodic table-inspired cupcakes made by a ChemClub, or make your own!
  • Publicize your event. Spread the word via websites, social media, newsletters, and more. Use the hashtag #IYPT2019 on social media.
