Online Brown-Bag: How to Host a National Chemistry Week Event

Wednesday, October 1, 2014
Event type: 

The NISE Net runs a series of online brown-bag conversations focused on helping partners share their work and learn from others in the Network. The aim of the online brown-bag conversations is to increase the number of professional development opportunities available to our partners, create more channels for Network partners to learn from each other directly, and create ways for partners to follow-up on ideas or efforts that emerge at in-person meetings.

Similar to NanoDays, National Chemistry Week is the annual community event of the American Chemical Society (ACS). It is celebrated during the fourth week of October and it encourages chemists and chemistry enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level. Join us to find out how to connect with ACS members in your area to collaborate on sharing the value of chemistry in everyday life. This year's National Chemistry Week theme is "The Sweet Side of Chemistry - Candy", showcasing the chemistry involved in candy and confections. We'll share NISE Net activities that have a candy connection, demonstrate how to make edible gummy capsules, and explain the chemistry behind these sweet activities.
