Georgia Section Celebrated National Chemistry Week

National Chemistry Week (NCW) was celebrated October 20-26, 2019, with the theme “Marvelous Metals.” 2019 is also the International Year of the Periodic Table!

The Georgia Section organized several NCW activities, and more details and photos can be found on the NCW page.

Periodic Table Trivia: David Sherrill and students at Georgia Tech created a Periodic Table Trivia activity page for 2019. 
NCW Teacher Care Packages: The Georgia Section sent “care packages” of chemistry-related educational materials to K-12 teachers in the section. 
Chemistry Day at Fernbank Science Center: A fun time was had by all at Fernbank Science Center’s annual Chemistry Day event. Over 600 guests attended our annual event which is supported by local college chemistry clubs, Dekalb county high school students, and the larger metro Atlanta science community.
