The Northeast Wisconsin American Chemical Society is putting on Virtual Chemistry Shows to celebrate Earth Week on April 22, April 24, and April 26. All three shows are at 3 pm on Facebook live:  Volunteer chemists of the Northeast Wisconsin American Chemical Society are happy to present three unique virtual chemistry shows relating chemistry to our Earth. Kids and their families will see demonstrations about properties of water and carbon dioxide, formation of clouds, earth friendly plastics and more.


Since 2003, Chemists Celebrate Earth Week has united members of the American Chemical Society with schools, businesses, and individuals in communicating the importance of chemistry for maintaining the health of our environment. CCEW occurs annually during the week of Earth Day, April 22. For more information about CCEW, visit and share on social media using the hashtags #CCEW and #EarthDay2020

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our Earth Day events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we do have something Earth Day related to share. Pat Hallquist has created an Earth Day Trivia contest!  It is open to families with 4K-12 students.  Here's the link:

Help spread positive messages about chemistry during "Chemists Celebrate Earth Week". Volunteers are needed for programs at the Oshkosh Public Library on April 18 and at the Oshkosh Boys & Girls Club on April 21.
