Work with Youth Outside of the Classroom

You can share chemistry with students outside of the classroom. A child’s birthday party, an after school program, a scout event, a demonstration at a local library, and a community expo are all great opportunities to introduce chemistry to young people.

If you’re planning a small, private event like a birthday party or a scout meeting, you can easily incorporate a chemistry experiment or demonstration. Chose a theme for the activity, and then prepare a hands-on experiment that is appropriate for the age of the kids you will be working with. The following links will help you prepare.

Visit the Chemistry Ambassadors Public Relations and Media Outreach section for tips and tools to publicize your event.
