Become a Science Coach

Posted by Kate Sellar Aug 14, 2013

Share your expertise and enthusiasm for science with an elementary, middle, or high school teacher—become an ACS Science Coach.  In this year-long volunteer role, you may find yourself planning and presenting demonstrations, helping students with lab, answering content questions, or providing real-world examples. Together, you and the teacher decide how to best combine your time and talents. If approved, ACS will donate $500 to the school to support your efforts. Find out more at

Tell Your ACS Story

Posted by Kate Sellar Aug 2, 2013

ACS has just launched a new campaign called “My ACS” that highlights ACS members and their personal membership stories.  Visit to find out how ACS members define their membership and tell us what defines yours. Is it connecting with others in the field or sharing your passion for chemistry with the next generation? Is it access to cutting-edge information and science? Or is it the competitive advantage you get from career planning, educational opportunities and leadership development that we offer? We want to hear your story! We’ll also send you a free t-shirt if we published your ACS story.
