National Chemistry Week

National Chemistry Week runs from October 21-27, 2012. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the NCW program! It encourages chemists and chemistry enthusiasts to build awareness of chemistry at the local level, and promote the value of chemistry in everyday life. Celebrate National Chemistry Week with Science for Kids activities, experiments, and games. Another resource for kids is ByteSize Science – an educational, entertaining podcast.

Celebrating Chemistry is a series of publications with kid-friendly, hands-on activities for exploring important chemistry topics. The series is designed to engage and educate children (Grades 4th – 6th) in the basic principles of chemistry and are available in both English and Spanish. Most editions are aligned with either National Chemistry Week (NCW) or Chemists Celebrate Earth Day (CCED) and contain articles, experiments and puzzles based on each year’s themes. This year’s theme is Nanotechnology: the Smallest BIG Idea in Science!
