ACS Kids Zone

ACS Kids Zones are public events featuring facilitator-supported chemistry activities for children and their families. ACS members, including local chemists, chemistry students, and members of the ACS Committee on Community Activities support the interactive investigations so that children experience success doing and learning chemistry.
