Ideas from our Local Section discussion track

Some brainstormy ideas that were flagged for us:

1) Aligning to the NCW 2019 theme (not selected yet)

2) Align theme to the CCEW 2019 theme - The Chemistry of Paper

3) Align the theme to the 2019 national meetings? - San Diego in August 2019 is the Chemistry of Water

4) Recording the virtual component audio to release as a podcast series over the course of 2019 under the ACS logo.

Re: Ideas from our Local Section discussion track

These are some intriguing ideas for your local section discussion track. Here are some thoughts and expansions on each:

Aligning to the NCW 2019 theme (not selected yet):

  • Explore potential themes for National Chemistry Week (NCW) 2019 and brainstorm how your local section can align its discussions with the chosen theme. This could involve topics related to the theme, guest speakers who can address relevant issues, or interactive activities that tie into the theme.

Align theme to the CCEW 2019 theme - The Chemistry of Paper:

  • Dive into the chemistry of paper and its applications in various fields such as art conservation, recycling processes, paper manufacturing, etc. Organize talks or workshops focusing on the chemistry behind paper production, its properties, and its environmental impact. Align the theme to the 2019 national meetings?

- San Diego in August 2019 is the Chemistry of Water:

Explore the chemistry of water and its significance in different contexts, including environmental, biological, and industrial aspects. Discuss topics such as water purification, desalination technologies, water conservation, and the role of water in chemical reactions and biological processes. Recording the virtual component audio to release as a podcast series over the course of 20

19 under the ACS logo: Create a podcast series featuring recordings of your virtual discussion sessions. This can serve as a valuable resource for members who couldn't attend the live discussions and reach a wider audience interested in chemistry-related topics. Consider inviting guest speakers or experts to participate in the podcast episodes to add depth and diversity to the discussions. These ideas provide opportunities for engaging discussions, knowledge sharing, and outreach within your local section while also aligning with broader themes and initiatives in the field of chemistry. india door design

Re: Ideas from our Local Section discussion track

During our Local Section discussion, several compelling ideas were proposed, each offering unique opportunities for engagement and outreach:

Aligning with NCW 2019 Theme: The National Chemistry Week (NCW) theme for 2019 has not been finalized yet. However, aligning our activities with the chosen theme could provide a cohesive and unified approach to our outreach efforts. By incorporating elements of the NCW theme into our events and programs, we can contribute to the nationwide celebration of chemistry and its impact on society.

Integration with CCEW 2019 Theme - "The Chemistry of Paper": The Chemistry of Paper is the theme for the 2019 celebration of Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW). This presents a fantastic opportunity for us to explore the role of chemistry in paper production, recycling, and sustainability. We could organize workshops, demonstrations, and educational materials focused on paper chemistry, raising awareness about environmental issues and the importance of sustainable practices.

Alignment with 2019 National Meetings - "Chemistry of Water" in San Diego: The 2019 national meetings, particularly the event in San Diego, will focus on the Chemistry of Water. This theme offers rich possibilities for educational outreach and public engagement. We could organize hands-on experiments, lectures, and demonstrations highlighting the chemistry of water, its properties, and its significance in various scientific and societal contexts. Collaborating with other local sections and organizations could amplify the impact of our efforts and reach a broader audience.

Creation of a Podcast Series from Virtual Component Audio: Recording the audio from our virtual component and releasing it as a podcast series under the ACS logo presents an innovative way to extend the reach of our activities. Podcasts are a popular and accessible medium that allows for in-depth exploration of scientific topics. By producing a series of podcasts throughout the year, we can provide valuable educational content to our members and the public, enhancing engagement and fostering a deeper understanding of chemistry-related issues.

Each of these ideas offers a unique opportunity to connect with our community, promote the importance of chemistry, and inspire future generations of scientists. By carefully considering and implementing these suggestions, we can make a meaningful impact and further our mission of advancing the chemical sciences for the benefit of society.
