NCW coordinators should submit NCW events to the event locator. This allows people in the local section to find local outreach events via www.acs.org/ncw. Be sure to check the “National Chemistry Week” keyword and mention the time and place of the event in the event description, so those interested will know when and where to attend.
Soon you'll see the top participants here. Start collaborating with others to earn points and you just might see yourself on this page.
NCW is a community-based annual event that unites ACS local sections, businesses, schools, and individuals in communicating the importance of chemistry to our quality of life. For more information on the theme, visit www.acs.org/ncw.
