Saturday Science is something that the American Chemical Science holds twice a year. Volunteers from our ACS chapter as well as other Pitt students volunteer to teach high school freshmen general analytical and organic concepts. The high school freshmen that come are from local high schools are minority groups who have been selected by their teachers or are interested in chemistry. We work with the students doing demonstrations as well as hands on experiments.
National Chemistry Week
National Chemistry Week encourages chemists and chemistry enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level. Local Sections, businesses, schools, and individuals are invited to organize or participate in events in their communities with a common goal: to promote the value of chemistry in everyday life. The ACS-SA and Women's Chemist Committee both set up booths at the Carnegie Science Center to perform demonstrations for visitors.
