Chicago Section - March for Science Photos: March Photos

The Chicago Section of the ACS was very proud to participate in the April 22, 2017 (Earth Day) March for Science!! http://sciencemarchchicago.org/

 

After the rally and march, we represented the ACS with an engagement table at the #ScienceCity Expo at the end of the event. Hundreds of people came by to talk about chemistry, science, and science policy. Our table featured:

  • A periodic table blanket from the Member-get-a-Member program. Many dozens of people took selfies with it!!
  • Maps of the 120+ chemistry companies in our Section, showing March attendees how much chemistry is around them.
  • Our March signs ("Chemists (love) Safety", "Chemists (love) Clean Air and Water", "Chemists (love) Safe Medicine")
  • ACS literature for "Chemists Celebrate Earth Day", including the illustrated poetry contest
  • An "Ask a Chemist" station with pens and a flipchart tablet for illustration
  • Several engaging chemists!
