SAC booth during the Friday morning Expo
Two booths will be reserved for the undergraduate program during the Friday morning Exposition. SACs are invited to present their favorite demonstration, present a poster, pass out fliers, etc. during a 45-minute interval. This will allow the chapters to take an active role in the larger meeting and increase circulation during the session.
How to be an Award Winning Chapter
Each Southeast Region student affiliate chapter of the ACS will be invited to present a poster of current service projects, fundraising ideas, and strategies for integrating chemistry in the community. This event will kick off with a “Chemistry is Sweet” liquid nitrogen ice cream making competition. Awards will be given for the best ice cream and students will be able to share ideas for new events between chapters.
A social event will be held to let students get to know each other on a more informal basis. More information to come.
