It’s National Chemistry Week! This year’s theme is Energy Now and Forever.
Look to see if there’s a National Chemistry Week event taking place near you. Not much going on? Make your own fun by helping the members of your scout troop, 4-H, or other youth group earn their chemistry patch by completing a few simple activities.
You’ll have to confirm with your local coordinator, but there might be time to enter the NCW Illustrated Poem Contest. Students K-12 choose one of a variety of styles to write a poem of up to 40 words reflecting this year’s National Chemistry Week theme and then illustrate their poem. Local winners advance to the national level for a chance to win $300. Not a bad way get your STEAM on.
