ACS Science Coaches

The Georgia Section section is currently looking for volunteers to participate in the ACS Science Coaches program. This program allows science educators to partner with an ACS member to enhance the quality of chemical education in the classroom.

Opportunities to participate exist at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.

  • There is no minimum time requirement to participate; rather, teachers will work with the professionals on specific projects or ideas (labs, demonstrations, giving a talk about chemical careers, etc.).
  • Participating teachers receive a $500 grant from the ACS.
  • Interested teachers must be members of the American Association of Chemistry Teachers (AACT).

ACS members interested in participating should contact Tyler Kinner for more information.

2017 Theme

The Georgia Local Section of the ACS has selected the theme, A Year of Giving: Catalyzing Chemistry via Community, for its 2017 programming. A Year of Giving refers to the outreach and education of technical and non-technical audiences about the importance of chemists and chemistry via the coupling of commonplace and technical chemistry ideas. We hope you will join and support us in this critical mission.
