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!
