Chemists Celebrate Earth Week Educational Resources

Blog Post created by ACS Green Chemistry Institute® on Apr 17, 2020

Due to COVID-19, the Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW) campaign has gone fully digital with instructions for organizing virtual events and an updated suite of educational resources.



Find a Virtual CCEW Event to participate or learn how to plan your own Virtual Demo Event and Digital Illustrated Poem Contest for K-12 audiences, and Virtual Teach-In for higher education and adult audiences. Amplify the campaign on social media using the hashtags #CCEW, #EarthDay2020, and #chemistry. Help show collective action by adding your virtual events to Facebook and submitting your photos, videos, and screenshots to the CCEW 2020 Photo Album.






If you don’t have time to plan events, you can still utilize and share digital educational resources with teachers in need! Check out the:

Celebrating Chemistry Coloring Book (grades K-2)

Endangered Elements Color by Numbers (PDF) (grades 3-6)

ChemCatcher (PDF) (grades 9-12, undergraduate)

Earth Day 50th Anniversary Timeline (PDF) (grades 9-12, undergraduate)

and more educational resources organized by age group.
