Our other educational outreach priority is in the form of our relationship with WonderLab, the local children's science museum in Bloomington. This relationship started with the design, development, and installation of an organic chemistry-themed museum exhibit on the relationship between chemical structure and scent. This exhibit was funded by an ACS Innovative Project Grant in 2013, and the remaining funds were provided by the SISACS. We have continued our partnership with WonderLab to improve the exhibit, and have expanded this project to include a portable exhibit that can be sent to libraries around the country (funded by an ACS Innovative Project Grant in 2018) and we recently initiated a partnership with a new science museum in northwestern Illinois called the Children's Hands-On Museum of Northwestern Illinois, and have installed the exhibit there.
