Why do we need Chemistry Ambassadors?
As chemists, we help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges and improve people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry. But not everyone knows that. By becoming a Chemistry Ambassador, you can help educate people about the importance of chemists and chemistry, while taking part in community activities that are engaging and fulfilling for you on your own time schedule. One by one, Chemistry Ambassadors can help improve public awareness and public appreciation for the central role of chemistry in our everyday lives.
There’s an activity for everyone. Talk to children about science, write an editorial about chemistry, organize a science cafÉ for your community, or simply share with friends and neighbors how your profession improves the world. Use the Chemistry Ambassador tools. Share the chemistry – imagine the reaction! And then tell us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our ACS Network Community.
