Volunteer with Kids & Chemistry
Kids & Chemistry is a community-based program that brings together scientists and children to do hands-on science activities. Volunteers include ACS members, ACS Student Chapters, and corporate groups.
Volunteer efforts can be implemented as a full program administered by an ACS local section or by an individual as a one-time classroom visit. The program can also be incorporated into an existing corporate outreach/education program, or serve as the focal point for a larger mentoring program.
