2 MISSION C h e m C l u b invites, motivates, and encourages high school students who are fascinated by the many ways that chemistry connects to their world.

3 WHAT IS CHEMCLUB? high school club that provides students with a unique opportunity to experience chemistry beyond the classroom. There are currently over 330 clubs across the United States being supported by the American Chemical Society - with 5 clubs here in Colorado – Regis Jesuit High School; Palmer High School; Wasson High School; Denver Venture School; George Washington High School

4 WHAT IS CHEMCLUB? ChemClub provides students the opportunity to… – participate in chemistry activities outside of the classroom, – get involved in their community, – learn about chemistry careers, – enjoy social events, and – better appreciate how chemistry plays a role in our everyday lives.

5 ACS SUPPORT ACS supports chartered* clubs with fun and useful resources. handbook of information and resources for starting a club and conducting club activities. quarterly themed resource packets – inlcuding experiments, demonstrations, tips, and suggestions for non-laboratory club activities. help to connect to ACS local section & nearby ACS Student college chapter ChemClub Directory - lists clubs in your area Bonus items, such as t-shirts, copies of ChemMatters and the Journal of Chemical Education, are offered during the year, at no cost for active, chartered* clubs. * Free application – no fees involved in being a chartered club
