National Chemistry Week!

National Chemistry week is October 16-22nd! National Chemistry week promotes awareness of the importance of chemistry in our everyday lives. It is also a week for chemists and chemistry enthusiasts to help build an awareness of chemistry in their community. National Chemistry week is an annual event coordinated by the American Chemical Society. The event seeks to inspire new generations to develop a love for chemistry, and maybe even become a chemist one day. Find out more by visiting their Facebook page.


The New York state museum in Albany, NY will be hosting “Solving Mysteries Through Chemistry” on October 22nd, 10 am to 4 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
