Education in the Georgia Section

A variety of education and outreach activities are available to interact with K-12 students and teachers in the Georgia section. Contact Education Committee chair Sara Paquette for more information.

The Georgia Section also supports the Chemistry Olympiad and Mini Grants programs. 

ACS Science Coaches

The Georgia Section section is currently looking for volunteers to participate in the ACS Science Coaches program. This program allows science educators to partner with an ACS member to enhance the quality of chemical education in the classroom.

  • Opportunities to participate exist at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
  • There is no minimum time requirement to participate; rather, teachers will work with the professionals on specific projects or ideas (labs, demonstrations, giving a talk about chemical careers, etc.).
  • Participating teachers receive a $500 grant from the ACS.
  • Interested teachers must be members of the American Association of Chemistry Teachers (AACT).

ACS members interested in participating should contact Tyler Kinner for more information.
