Chemistry @ The Mall


The Western Michigan ACS section celebrates National Chemistry Week each year by engaging the next generation of scientists in interactive chemistry demonstrations. This year, the American Chemical Society has chosen the theme to be "Marvelous Metals" and the celebration will take place October 20-26, 2019. We plan to have some hands-on demonstrations relating to this topic at our hands-on event this fall, however, instead of Chemistry @ The Mall we will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the periodic table. For more information on that event that is still free to the public, please visit our IYPT page.


Section members performed demonstrations live on TV in 2018: Fox 17 Morning Mix and WZZM Morning News

Information about entries for the 2019 contest may be found at 2019 Marvelous Metals Poster Contest. Winners from the local section contests in past years may be viewed below.
