What We Do

As the local section of the American Chemical Society, we present a range of outreach activities to engage a range of students (including K-12 and university-level students) and the general public in chemistry as well as science in general. We also have a range of networking events, including talks and more informal meetings, to engage and enable our members to network and interact with each other.

As part of our mission and as enabled by some very generous donations in the past, we offer annually a range of different awards.
