Information for Current ACS-Hach Grant Recipients

Congratulations on receiving the ACS-Hach High School Chemistry Grant!

We hope that the grant has benefited you in your efforts to improve the teaching and learning of chemistry in your classroom especially in our post-pandemic environment.  We would like to specifically hear about your accomplishments, challenges, activities, and overall experience resulting from your grant award. The final report is a way to help you meet the conditions of the award, and it is your opportunity to share your experience with us and others who may be interested in applying in the future.

How to Submit Your Report

To submit your report, login in to the Hach Grant Management System and complete the “ACS-Hach High School Grant Report Form.”

Report Components

Your Experience

In 500 words or less, describe an accomplishment, an unanticipated challenge, an activity, and/or an aspect of the grant that best represents your experience. Include the number of students impacted, how the students were impacted, and how your classroom has changed. If you had to make any changes or pivots to the grant, explain what they were and what happened as a result.  This information will be shared with the general public so please be as descriptive as possible.

Student Impact

Provide an estimate on the number of students impacted by your grant during the 2020-2021 school year.

Photos & Photo Captions (Optional)

We understand that the pandemic has resulted in classrooms looking differently this year.  The requirement for having a photo is optional.  If you would like to submit a photo, we ask that you provide one that is active, engaging, and best illustrates your proposed outcomes (i.e., students working on the lab using the equipment). The photo must be high resolution (300 DPI, 5 MB max) jpeg/gif/png. Submit the photos in an image format; do not insert the photos into a MS Word or PDF document. Each photo should have a short caption.
