CONGRATULATIONS to two extraordinary local sections for their work to establish innovative activities to engage senior chemists. This year, the ACS Senior Chemists Committee recognized the following sections for the "Most Innovative Activity in a Local Section for Senior Chemists" and the "Best Ongoing Senior Activity in a Local Section that Benefits the Community, Local Schools, or Legislative Government."

LEHIGH VALLEY

MOST INNOVATIVE ACTIVITY IN A LOCAL SECTION

The Lehigh Valley section held a meeting for senior chemists demonstrating expertise in chemistry

to K-12 and undergraduate students. Students discussed using social media and practical

approaches to capturing, editing, and uploading pictures and video.

 

CORNING

BEST ONGOING SENIOR ACTIVITY IN A LOCAL SECTION

THAT BENEFITS THE COMMUNITY, LOCAL SCHOOLS, AND THE LEGISLATIVE GOVERNMENT

Visits were made by retired chemists to six Corning elementary schools. During National Chemistry Week,

four schools were visited covering third and fifth grades doing hour-long hands-on activities

entitled "Quality Control" and "Catapult Engineering". A total of 200 students participated.

Visits were made throughout the school year as an ongoing effort to continue the initiative that's taken place for more than 30 years.
